Justice Thomas no longer listed as GWU faculty after Roe response

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is not listed as a course instructor on the George Washington University Law School website, where he has taught since 2011. .

Thomas, one of five judges who voted to set the precedent set by Roe v. Wade in 1973, also authored a concurring opinion suggesting that the court should also review other precedents, including those entitling Americans to birth control, same-sex marriage, and same-sex relationships. His role in the decision prompted a GWU student to launch a petition, signed by 11,300 people, calling for Thomas to be removed from his university teaching position.

In an email obtained by the GWU student newspaper, The Hatchet, Thomas’ co-instructor said the justice department had informed him that he would not be available to teach this semester.
