Washington — Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s flag draped casket arrived to the Supreme Court on Wednesday morning, where her body will lie in repose for the next two days.
People have gathered around the Supreme Court, waiting in line for a public outdoor viewing. DC resident Eileen Dougherty said she was shocked when she heard of Ginsburg’s passing on Friday. She came to the court today to pay tribute to Ginsburg’s legacy. “I just was filled with a profound sadness. I think we’ve lost a great leader, a moral conscious,” said Dougherty.
Justice Ginsburg’s casket will be moved to the Capitol on Friday where she will lie in state, making her the first woman to be granted that honor.
