Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to lie in repose at the Supreme Court Wednesday and Thursday

The casket will arrive in front of the Supreme Court just before 9:30 a.m. ET Wednesday and a private ceremony with family, close friends and the justices will take place in the Great Hall at the court. Following the ceremony, the casket will be moved under the portico at the top of the building’s front steps.

Former law clerks will serve as honorary pallbearers, lining the steps as the casket arrives.

Ginsburg will then lie in state in National Statuary Hall in the United States Capitol on Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Monday.

Ginsburg died Friday at the age of 87.
