TULSA, Okla. (AP) — U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor will speak with University of Tulsa students and faculty during an event next month.

The University of Tulsa College of Law announced Monday that Sotomayor will be in Tulsa on Sept. 10 for a fireside chat on campus.

Professor Robert Spoo will moderate the event and the audience will have a chance to ask questions. Questions must be submitted prior to the event, which starts at 2 p.m. at the Lorton Performance Center.

Sotomayor joined dissenting justices in the high court's decision in June involving Oklahoma City-based Hobby Lobby. The court's ruling allows for-profit corporations, including Hobby Lobby, to assert religious objections to paying for contraceptives for women, as required under President Barack Obama's health care law.
