Mourners gathered at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington on Saturday for the funeral of the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

The funeral came after a week of mourning for Scalia, who died last Saturday at 79. He was remembered as an intellectual giant on the Supreme Court known for his clear legal writing.

Scalia's seat at the Supreme Court bench was draped in black earlier this week, and the justice lay in repose at the Court on Friday as the public lined up to pay their respects.

Among those who attended Saturday's service were Vice President Joe Biden as well as current and former Supreme Court justices.
