Dorsey & Whitney has named trial attorney Eric Ruzicka its new pro bono partner. Ruzicka will oversee the firm’s pro bono efforts worldwide.
Ruzicka has been a commercial litigator at Dorsey since 2001. His pro bono work has included representing litigants in housing court and representing the NAACP in a school desegregation case. He currently represents the ACLU in efforts to obtain information from various federal agencies related to targeted killing of United States citizens using drones.
“It is an incredible honor to have this opportunity to lead Dorsey & Whitney’s pro bono efforts,” Ruzicka said in a prepared statement.
Ruzicka replaces Perry Wilson, who left Dorsey last month to become an administrative law judge with the State of Minnesota.
