SALT LAKE CITY — Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is coming to Utah for a special fireside discussion. The gathering — hosted by the Orrin G. Hatch Foundation — is set for the Grand America Hotel downtown on Friday, March 11, at 7 p.m.

“Justice Thomas is among the most consequential jurists of modern times,” said Matt Sandgren, executive director of the Hatch Foundation. “He is a lion of the law whose commitment to the Constitution has played an invaluable role in the Court’s jurisprudence over the last three decades. The friendship between Senator Hatch and Justice Thomas goes back many years, so it was only natural to invite him to Utah. We are honored to host Justice Thomas for what is sure to be an unforgettable evening.”

Thomas will be the first Supreme Court justice to speak in the state since the Hatch Foundation hosted Neil Gorsuch in 2019.

Ticket information will be available on Feb. 1 at orrinhatchfoundation.org.

Thomas took his seat on the Supreme Court in 1991. The 73-year-old, who is a graduate of Holy Cross and Yale, has an extensive background in public service and the law.
