CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — For the 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. University spokesman Chad Baldwin says rising rates of COVID-19 generally, and not cases at the university specifically, are the reason for cancellation.

There are no plans to reschedule.
