WASHINGTON (AP) — The body of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has arrived at the Supreme Court, where mourners will be able to pay their respects today as the casket rests in the court's Great Hall.

After a private ceremony including family, friends and justices, the casket will be on public view until 8 p.m. President Barack Obama and his wife are among those planning to pay their respects.

The justice's former law clerks will take turns standing vigil by their former boss throughout the day and night in a tradition most recently observed after the 2005 death of former Chief Justice William Rehnquist.

A funeral Mass will be held Saturday.
