Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, the famously quiet justice who has served on the court since 1991, will be the featured speaker at a special event April 9 at the Duquesne University School of Law.
Duquesne officials are highlighting the event as “an afternoon with Justice Clarence Thomas,” who is scheduled to speak at the 3:30 p.m. event in the Duquesne Union Ballroom.
Thomas, 63, who has been silent in public court proceedings since 2006, startled reporters during a Supreme Court hearing in January when he leaned over and made what many believe was a brief joke about an attorney's affiliation with his alma mater, Yale Law School.
The event is free and open to the public. To register, visit duq.edu/law/justicethomas.
