Justice Antonin Scalia Lies in Repose

The casket bearing Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was brought to the United States Supreme Court on Friday morning so that colleagues, staff members, former law clerks and the nation could pay their final respects.

Scalia’s casket was carried up the front steps of the court and carried into the Great Hall where it was placed on a catafalque, on loan from Congress, that was used during President Abraham Lincoln’s funeral.

A long line of people wanting to pay their respects to Justice Scalia wrapped around the building.

Scalia, who died on Feb. 13, 2016, will lie in repose in the Great Hall of the Supreme Court on Friday with funeral services to be held at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C., on Saturday.
