No it can't. The only way to overturn a supreme court decision is either another supreme court decision, or a constitutional amendment.

Unless the 'other court' is a later US Supreme Court, no. A court case in the US, once decided on by the Supreme Court, cannot be appealed to any body, so the case is decided. However, the precedent set by a US Supreme court case can be changed by a later US Supreme Court case decision, as was the case when Brown v Board of Education changed the precedent set by Plessy v Ferguson.

The only court that can overturn a Supreme court decision is the Supreme court itself. The Supreme court is the highest ruling court in the United States of America.

No. The US Supreme Court is the final court of appeal; if they deny your case, the decision of the lower court stands. There is no other avenue of appeal.

There are only two ways in which a decision can be overruled:The Court can change it's own decision or make a different constitutional interpretation in a later decision.

No. Slavery was abolished by the Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution in a joint effort between Congress and the states that ratified the amendment. A constitutional amendment is more powerful than a US Supreme Court decision, because it is not subject to change by the Supreme Court.

A U. S. president cannot reverse a U. S. Supreme Court decision or the decision of the Supreme Court of any state or territory.

Yes, they can.However, if the decision involves a question of federal or constitutional law and the case is petitioned to the US Supreme Court for a writ of certiorari, and if the U.S. Supreme Court grants certiorari, and if the U.S. Supreme Court rules differently from the state supreme court, the state is bound by the U.S. Supreme Court decision under the doctrine of Stare decisis, which is abbreviated from a Latin phrase that means "let the decision stand."

the lower court's decision stands unless there is a majority of the Supreme Court in favor of overturning it.
