COVID-19 cancels Gorsuch Wyoming visit for 2nd year in a row

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — For a second year in a row, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch will not visit the University of Wyoming due to the coronavirus.

Gorsuch had been scheduled to visit the law school and campus Sept. 16, giving a talk alongside Wyoming Supreme Court Justice Lynne Boomgaarden in the Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts concert hall.

The virus postponed a 2020 visit planned in recognition of the law school’s 100th anniversary.

Rising rates of COVID-19 generally, and not cases at the university specifically, were the reason for cancellation, university spokesman Chad Baldwin said Tuesday.

There were no plans to reschedule, university officials said in a statement.
