Growing Memorial for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Outside of the Supreme Court


A memorial formed outside the Supreme Court after hundreds of people gathered to mourn the death of the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Candles and flowers dotted the area outside of the high court starting Friday, with signs and other tributes thanking Ginsburg for her long legal career.

Mourners were seen singing Amazing Grace, while others chanted the mourner's Kaddish, the Jewish prayer for the dead. Ginsburg was Jewish, and her death Friday took place on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.

Ginsburg died Friday due to complications of metastatic pancreatic cancer at the age of 87. Just the second woman to be nominated to the high court, she served on the Supreme Court for 27 years.
