WASHINGTON (AP) — Justice Antonin Scalia’s flag-draped casket has arrived at the Supreme Court where it will lie in repose on Friday.

Supreme Court police served as pallbearers to carry the casket up the marble steps into the court’s Great Hall.

The procession passed between two long lines of Scalia’s former law clerks that stretched from the plaza to the court’s main entrance. Another group of 12 former clerks serving as honorary pallbearers followed.

The procession passed before the court’s eight current justices and the casket was placed on the Lincoln Catafalque.

That’s the same platform on which President Abraham Lincoln’s coffin once rested at the Rotunda of the Capitol in 1865.
