Weeks after free tickets for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s lecture in Little Rock were snapped up in minutes, the talk was moved across the river to Verizon Arena in North Little Rock.

Ginsburg’s talk is part of the Frank and Kula Kumpuris Distinguished Lecture series from the Clinton School of Public Service and the Clinton Foundation.

After the tickets were quickly claimed on July 9, officials encouraged people who missed out to join a waitlist. The Clinton School announced in a Thursday news release that the change of venue will allow for additional RSVPs from that waitlist, although the event “remains at capacity.”

Ginsburg is set to speak at 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 3.

Verizon Arena has a seating capacity of around 18,000, according to the venue’s website. A Clinton School spokesman said that roughly 16,000 seats would likely be available for the Supreme Court justice’s lecture.

The lecture was originally set at the Jack Stephens Center at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, which seats 5,600. A Clinton School spokesman said that, with the addition of floor seating, about 6,000 people could have attended. Tickets for the event were claimed within half an hour of when they first became available.

    What can she possibly say that would be "so" interesting?
    . . .assuming that she doesn't fall asleep.

    Ah...the cryptkeeper itself rises from her vampire-like slumber to tell tales of her glee of destroying the Constitution, murdering of babies in the womb, and other things of her evil doing.

    Did Brenda Looper give you a pat on the head in appreciation ?
