Former US justice to open sovereignty symposium

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ A former U.S. Supreme Court justice is scheduled to give the keynote address at this year's Sovereignty Symposium.

Former Associate Justice Sandra Day O'Connor is among speakers scheduled to address symposium participants during its opening day on Wednesday.

O'Connor was appointed to the nation's highest court in 1981 by President Ronald Reagan and she retired from the court in 2006. She was the first woman to be appointed to the Supreme Court. Prior to her appointment, O'Connor was an elected official and judge in Arizona.

The annual Sovereignty Symposium was established to provide a forum in which ideas concerning common legal issues, including tribal law, can be exchanged in a scholarly, non-adversarial environment. Sponsors include the Oklahoma Supreme Court and the Indian Law Section of the Oklahoma Bar Association.
