BOZEMAN--Montana State University's lifelong learning program Wonderlust will host attorney Tom Stonecipher for a talk on Friday, Nov. 9 at noon.

In a Friday Forum presentation at Pilgrim Congregational Church, 2118 S. Third in Bozeman, Stonecipher will discuss the Citizens United decision, a Supreme Court case through which corporations attained personhood, constitutional rights and virtually unbridled ability to spend money on elections.

Stonecipher will discuss how the decision came to be and its impact on Montanans. Stonecipher, of Bozeman, has litigated in state and federal courts in Chicago and Montana and argued before the Montana Supreme Court.

The forum is free and open to the public.
Wonderlust is a lifelong learning organization affiliated with MSU's Extended University. Audience members are encouraged to bring lunch while the sponsors will provide coffee and cookies. For more information, visit http://eu.montana.edu/Wonderlust
