Memorial observances begin Tuesday for late U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice William Rehnquist, who died of cancer Saturday at the age of 80.
Mr. Rehnquist's flag-draped coffin will be brought into the Great Hall of the Supreme Court building in Washington, where he will lie in repose until his funeral Wednesday.
The conservative chief justice, a veteran of World War Two, will be buried in a private full-honors ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery.
President Bush has praised Mr. Rehnquist's legal expertise and devotion to duty during his 33 years on the nine-member high court.
Mr. Rehnquist spent 19 years of his tenure as the court's chief justice. Appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court are made by the president, and are for life.
