Arkansas Connection Prompts U.S. Supreme Court Justice Thomas to Make Rare Public Appearance

Arkansas Appeals thought readers would find this Arkansas connection interesting.

Justice Clarence Thomas, who spoke at the UALR Bowen School of Law in January of 2007 (click on current issue of the Hearsay for the article pertaining to Justice Thomas’s Arkansas appearance), made another rare public appearance yesterday, on March 16, 2009, due to a request by an Arkansas judge’s daughter:

Thomas told the crowd he declines most invitations, but was persuaded to accept the one from William and Lee student Robin Wright. He had met her as a young child, he said, and had known her mother, U.S. District Judge Susan Webber Wright of Arkansas.

Judge Susan Webber Wright presently serves on the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas.
