TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States Sonia Sotomayor will be unable to visit The University of Alabama School of Law this week for the Albritton Lecture and related events. Weather caused by Hurricane Irma made her scheduled flights impossible.

The Justice’s staff said that she is disappointed about the cancellation and hopes to reschedule for a future date.
