WASHINGTON – The late Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will lie in state at the U.S. Capitol on Friday, becoming the first woman in history so honored.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Monday that Ginsburg's casket would be placed in National Statuary Hall, where a formal ceremony will be held for invited guests only.

A separate ceremony will be held Wednesday morning at the Supreme Court for Ginsburg's family, close friends and members of the court. The public then will have the chance to pay their respects from about 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday, and from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday, under the portico at the top of the courthouse steps.

Thirty-four men have been so honored at the Capitol since 1852. Civil rights icon Rosa Parks, who was not a public official, was lain in "honor" at the Capitol Rotunda in 2005, but Ginsburg will be the first woman to lie in state.
