Late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be the first woman to lie in repose at the Supreme Court, and the first woman to lie in state at the U.S. Capitol, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced. Ginsburg died Friday at age 87. It's a tradition for Supreme Court justices to lie at the court after their death. Ginsburg was the second woman ever nominated to the court, but the first, Sandra Day O'Connor, is still alive. Ginsburg's casket will arrive at the court Wednesday morning and remain there until Thursday evening. On Friday, Ginsburg's casket will make its way to the U.S. Capitol building. President Trump has promised to announce his nominee to replace Ginsburg on the court on Friday or Saturday.
