RBG: First woman to have this honor

The late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will lie in repose at the U.S. Supreme Court through Thursday.  The public is invited to pay respects on the portico at the top of the Supreme Court steps today and Thursday.

President Trump will visit the Supreme Court on Thursday to pay his respects.

On Friday, the body of Justice Ginsburg will lie in state in the U.S. Capitol – the first woman to have such an honor.

*A private interment will be held next week at Arlington National Cemetery.
