Whether or not a case can be heard by the highest court in the land depends upon the merits of the case itself.
The court has jurisdiction over lawsuits involving foreign diplomats, matters OS admirality, suits by the federal government against states and vice-versa, suits by a state against an non citizen immigrant or a citizen of a different state, and certain suits between two states (boundary or jurisdictional issues).
It may accept a case for review when there is a question as to whether or not a decision made by a lower state or federal court that violates the Constitutional rights of a citizen.
The majority of cases reviewed are chosen by the justices themselves usually based upon the Constitutionality of the verdict that was rendered.
The Supreme Court is the "final stop" of the judicial process and decisions rendered by the court are permanently binding and cannot be appealed
No. No one has a "right" to have his or her case heard by the US Supreme Court; the Supreme Court has complete discretion over its docket.
No. No one has a "right" to have a case heard by the US Supreme Court; their docket is entirely discretionary.
If a case is first heard by the US Supreme Court, it is heard under the Court's original jurisdiction.
The opinion of the Court, or the majority (or plurality) opinion, is the formal decision on a case heard by the US Supreme Court.
Nowhere. The US Supreme Court's decision is final.
the NOrthenr district court for Georgia heard the case before the supreme court.
The parties to a US Supreme Court case are typically referred to as the Petitioner and the Respondent. This is approximately analogous to the Plaintiff (Petitioner) and Defendant (Respondent) in a criminal case.
If the US Supreme Court is the first to hear a case, the Court has original jurisdiction.
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.
What does the supreme court case burns v. reed do?
No. The US Supreme Court has full discretion over cases heard under both its original and appellate jurisdiction, but is required to consider every case petitioned.
There are no juries at the US Supreme Court. All cases are heard "en banc."
The Supreme Court of the United States of America can choose to not hear a case. The Supreme Court can also send the case back to a lower court. Or, the US Supreme Court Judges can choose to proceed to hear the case and issue a ruling.
If a state court declares a state law unconstitutional, the state will probably appeal the case to the state supreme court. If a state court declares a federal law unconstitutional, the losing party in the case will appeal the decision in the federal courts. The case could ultimately be heard by the US Supreme Court; however, if a lower court reverses the state court's decision and either the appropriate US Court of Appeals Circuit Court or US Supreme Court decline to consider the case, the decision of the lower federal court would be final. The US Supreme Court is the ultimate arbiter of constitutionality.
The US Supreme Court heard the Marbury v. Madison case in 1803.Marbury v. Madison is considered one of the most important cases in the history of the Supreme Court.
If what you mean by a federal system you mean a supreme court, then NO. The only person who can bring a case to the supreme court is a lower court. Typically a case will get heard in a circuit court, then if contested, the findings will be reviewed by an appeals court and if it gets farther than that it will be reviewed by a state supreme court and eventually (only if it is a federal issue) it will be heard by the US supreme court. So technically a police officer can't bring it there, but he/she can be the initiator of the case on the lower level.Cheers!
The case must involve a federal question (matter of federal or constitutional law or US treaties) to be heard in a federal constitutional court (US District Courts, US Court of International Trade, US Court of Appeals Circuit Courts, Supreme Court of the United States).Cases involving monetary claims against the US are heard in the US Court of Federal Claims (not a constitutional court, but a federal court, nevertheless).
The US Supreme Court has heard more than 30,000 cases since its inception in 1789 (no cases were heard for the first few years).
No. The US Supreme Court is the final appellate court for cases heard under its jurisdiction; their authority supersedes that of the state supreme courts.
There isn't one. The US Supreme Court has appellate jurisdiction over most cases; they don't hold trials, and there is no jury. The only type of case heard under original (trial) jurisdiction involves disputes between the states. These are initially heard by a Court-appointed Special Master who advises the Supreme Court on a course of action.
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.
Generally, the US Supreme Court will hear a case from US District Court on direct or expedited appeal if:The case is of such national or constitutional importance it would clearly be appealed to and accepted by the Supreme Court anyway; orThe case involves legislation in which Congress specified appeals of District Court decisions must go directly to the Supreme Court (bypassing the Circuit Court).
The case is heard under the Supreme Court's appellate jurisdiction.Most US Supreme Court cases fall under its appellate jurisdiction, meaning the case started in a trial court (U.S. District Court or an appropriate state court), and has exhausted its lower court appeals. Under these circumstances, the case is "On appeal to the Supreme Court of the United States."The Supreme Court only accepts "federal question" cases, meaning the appeal must involve one or more (usually unresolved) issues of federal or constitutional law.
There is no case that set up the Supreme Court. The US Supreme Court was required under Article III of the Constitution; Congress created it with the Judiciary Act of 1789.
That depends on the case. Often, the state supreme court is the end of the road for a case, making the decision of the state supreme court final and binding. Sometimes cases involved federal questions (issues arising under the US Constitution or federal law) that allow them to be appealed to the US Supreme Court. If the US Supreme Court hears such a case, it may affirm or overturn the state supreme court decision.
