WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito is giving a lunchtime speech to a South Florida audience.
Alito is scheduled to speak Monday in West Palm Beach to a joint meeting of the Forum Club of the Palm Beaches and the Palm Beach County Bar Association. The topic of the speech wasn’t immediately available.
Alito generally votes with the nine-member court’s conservative wing. He was nominated by President George W. Bush and has served on the high court since January 2006.
Before that he was a federal appeals judge and was U.S. attorney in New Jersey.
