Marshall's casket to be in court hall

January 26, 1993|By Washington Bureau

WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court arranged yesterday a special tribute to Justice Thurgood Marshall.

His casket will be available for viewing in the court's cavernous Great Hall throughout the day tomorrow. The only other justice to be honored in this way was Chief Justice Earl Warren, a court spokesman said.

Mr. Marshall, 84, the nation's first black justice and a celebrated civil rights lawyer earlier in his career, died Sunday afternoon.

The public viewing of his casket will be followed by public funeral services at 11 a.m. Thursday at the National Cathedral. The burial service Friday at Arlington National Cemetery will be private.
