Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas stepped down from his job as a law lecturer at George Washington University’s as controversy over the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade rumbles on.
Thomas has been a lecturer at the school since 2011, but has now been removed as faculty from its website. His decision not to return to teaching comes in the wake of protests against conservative supreme court judges following the overturning of Roe v Wade in June 2022.
The school was hit by a petition calling for the removal of Thomas, with more than 11,000 signatories. But George Washington University is home to just 1,600 students, and bosses there defended Thomas, insisting he was entitled to his views.
It remains unclear why he has chosen to step down from his role – and whether he plans to return to it at a later date.
Thomas, a nominee of President George H.W. Bush, was one of the conservative justices who voted to overturn the right to abortion access.
Additionally, Thomas has written his opinion that SCOTUS should revisit other issues such as same-sex marriage and a guaranteed right to contraception.
Following these controversies, a Change.org petition seeking to have Thomas relieved from his role at George Washington law school garnered over 11,000 signatures.
