“Unfortunately, I am writing with some sad news: Justice Thomas has informed me that he is unavailable to co-teach the seminar this fall. I know that this is disappointing,” Thomas’ planned co-lecturer, Gregory Maggs, said.
“I am very sorry. The seminar has not been canceled but I will now be the sole instructor. For those of you still interested in taking the course, I assure you that we will make the best of the new situation,” he added.

The change comes after Thomas ruled alongside other conservative justices in the ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade and return abortion laws to states.
It is unclear whether the school’s change is due to the school’s decision or was made by Thomas, but speculation continues as politics influence both the nation’s highest court and the nation’s universities.
