TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The first woman appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court is sitting down for an interview before a live audience in Tucson on March 30th.

It's part of a revival of the Sunday Evening Forum at the Fox Theatre downtown.  Retired Arizona Supreme Court Justice Stanley Feldman will conduct the interview.

O'Connor has stayed busy in legal matters since her retirement from the nation's highest court in 2006.  Before President Ronald Reagan appointed her in 1981, she served as an elected official and judge in Arizona.  She was the first female Majority Leader in the United States as the Republican leaderin the Arizona Senate. 

As a conservative, she approached each case narrowly without arguing for sweeping precedents, and in the latter years of her tenure, she carried a swing opinion in many cases.  

Admission is free.  Tickets can be obtained from the Fox Theatre box office on Sunday, March 30th at 4 p.m.  Doors open at 6 p.m. and the event will start at 6:30 p.m. 
 
There will be a Patron Reception for Justice O'Connor prior to the main event from 5-6p.m. also at the Fox Theatre.  Cost for the pre-event reception will be $125 per person and includes priority seating.

Tickets may be purchased online at www.sundayeveningforum.com.  

The Sunday Evening Forum is a project of the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona.
