Late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will lie in repose outside the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday and Thursday, the court announced on Monday morning.

According to SCOTUS spokesperson Kathleen Arberg, there will first be a private memorial service inside the building for Ginsburg’s friends and family, along with her fellow justices, on Wednesday morning.

After the ceremony, Ginsburg will be brought outside to lie in repose for public viewing at the top of the steps on Wednesday through Thursday.

She will be buried during a private service next week at Arlington National Cemetery, the court stated.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced on Monday that the late justice will lie in state in the National Statuary Hall in the U.S. Capitol on Friday. A ceremony will be held that morning, which will be limited to invited guests only due to COVID-19.

Ginsburg died of complications from pancreatic cancer at age 87 on Friday night.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
