"The GW Hatchet, a student newspaper, first reported Thomas’s withdrawal from the fall teaching assignment Wednesday, citing an email that his longtime co-teacher, Judge Gregory E. Maggs of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces, sent to students enrolled in the class.
'Unfortunately, I am writing with some sad news: Justice Thomas has informed me that he is unavailable to co-teach the seminar this fall,' Maggs wrote, according to the Hatchet. 'I know that this is disappointing. I am very sorry.'
Maggs, a former clerk for Thomas and for retired associate justice Anthony M. Kennedy, has told students the class will go forward. “The seminar has not been canceled but I will now be the sole instructor,” Maggs said in the email the Hatchet obtained. “For those of you still interested in taking the course, I assure you that we will make the best of the new situation.”"

Some context and opinion:
The GW law administration should be credited for its position announced earlier: “Just as we affirm our commitment to academic freedom, we affirm the right of all members of our community to voice their opinions and contribute to the critical discussion that are foundational to our academic mission.” -BF
