September 9, 2016

Newman University has called off a planned appearance by Carol Beier, a Kansas Supreme Court justice, amid what officials called "unsettling" remarks on social media about the visit, The Wichita Eagle reported.

But officials said that the decision was made based on safety concerns, not Beier's views.
