Can a US Supreme Court decision be overturned?

Supreme Court decisions can only be overridden in two ways:
  1. The US Supreme Court reverses a decision on an earlier case by making a contradictory decision on a current case.

  2. Congress and the States override a decision by amending the Constitution.

There are several legitimate and illegitimate methods Congress and the President use to resist Supreme Court decisions that may have the practical effect of overriding a decision, however.
  1. Sometimes the Executive Branch obstructs or fails to enforce a decision.

  2. Sometimes Congress rewrites legislation to bring it into compliance with constitutional guidelines.

  3. Sometimes Congress strips the Supreme Court of its appellate jurisdiction over certain types of cases to deprive them of the ability to overturn a law or policy.
