LARAMIE, Wyo. — The University of Wyoming has agreed to host a public speech by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia next week on the condition that the university will restrict media coverage of the event.
Scalia's appearance Oct. 25 will include a question-and-answer session with the justice. The university says reporters won't be allowed to ask Scalia any questions.
The university also will prohibit any video or audio recording of Scalia for the purpose of broadcast.
University spokesman Chad Baldwin says the rules for media coverage are Scalia's and are consistent with the media rules for his public appearances elsewhere.
After his speech, Scalia will sign copies of his new book: "Reading Law: The Interpretation of Legal Texts." The book is available in the UW bookstore.
