Columbus, Ohio (AP) -- Hundreds of mourners have waited as long as an hour to pay tribute to Ohio Supreme Court justice Thomas Moyer.
One week after his death, Moyer's body is lying in state Friday in the courtroom where he presided in downtown Columbus.
Moyer's closed casket is draped with an Ohio flag, and his black robe hangs over his chair.
Members of Moyer's family, including his wife mary, received visitors along with most of the justices.
A public funeral service is scheduled for Saturday morning at First Community Church in Marble Cliff, just west of Columbus.
Burial will be private.
Also, a public memorial is being planned for Law Day, May 1. Details are pending.
Moyer was 70 when he died last Friday after being hospitalized for a gastrointestinal issue.
