the supreme court is the final judge in all cases involving laws ofCongress, and the highest law of all - the Constitution
Sorry, no go. Supreme Court Judgments can't be overturned by mere Family Courts-- unless you live in Rhode Island (they do things differently in Rhode Island. Once, I shot my neighbors cow, and he sued me-- I won on libel, don't ask why. Rhode Island is weird.) . A Parcel Law was recently passed the…re, so if you need Child Support, I suggest you go to a Family Court there. ( Full Answer )
Answer A Supreme Court is the highest you can go to; there is nothing higher and they are the final word on the matter. Thus they are the court that is supreme above all others. Answer The name comes directly from Article III, Section 1 of the US Constitution, which reads: "The judicial… power of the United States, shall be vested in one Supreme Court , and in such inferior courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish. The judges, both of the supreme and inferior courts, shall hold their offices during good behaviour, and shall, at stated times, receive for their services, a compensation, which shall not be diminished during their continuance in office." Supreme Court is just a general term for a government body's highest court, and is used by many other countries in addition to the United States. ( Full Answer )
Was the US Supreme Court initially supportive of Roosevelt's attempts to deal with the Great Depression?
No. The nine Lochner-era justices Roosevelt inherited from earlier administrations opposed most of his New Deal legislation, declaring six of the eight major Acts unconstitutional. The 1935 and 1936 Terms were especially brutal, but the Court began to shift toward a more progressive stance in 1937,… as the older justices retired and were replaced. Roosevelt appointed eight new, liberal, justices between 1937 and 1943, beginning a progressive era that lasted into the 1970s. ( Full Answer )

Did President Roosevelt propose legislation in 1937 that would increase support of his ideas on the US Supreme Court?
Answer Yes. In 1937, President Franklin D. Roosevelt drafted a bill for Congress titled the " Judiciary Reorganization Bill of 1937 ," which became popularly known as the "Court-packing Plan," for Roosevelt's attempt to add as many as six new Justices to the Supreme Court. Roosevelt hoped to bui…ld more support for New Deal programs . Although the bill endeavored a broad overhaul and modernization of the federal court system, its most important provision was the proposal that one new Justice be appointed for every sitting Justice over the age of 70.5, up to a maximum of six members (which could potentially have brought the total count to 15). The motivation behind this change was the President's frustration with the conservative majority opposition to his New Deal legislation. Roosevelt believed the incumbent justices were too old and set in their ways to appreciate the bold scope of the President's plans to revive the economy. He hoped that, by stacking the Court with more liberal Justices, those who shared his ideology, he would create an atmosphere more favorable toward his policies. Roosevelt's proposed legislation failed when the Senate voted 70-20 to return the bill to the Judiciary Committee with explicit instructions to strip it of its court-packing provisions.

The Florida Bar polls all lawyers residing and practicing in Florida asking respondents whether the incumbent justice and appeals court judges should be retained or not and asked that they consider eight attributes in their ratings. Those attributes are: -- Quality and clarity of judicial opinions…. -- Knowledge of the law. -- Integrity. -- Judicial temperament. -- Impartiality. -- Freedom from bias/prejudice. -- Demeanor -- Courtesy. The Florida Bar has published results of its polls as a public service. (Florida Supreme Court site) So, he has to consider the evidence of the cases he hears and refrain from bias. Ninth Circuit Judge Belvin Perry, Jr., who was the keynote speaker at the ceremony where Wells became chief justice, knew of Wells because of his prominent family and community activities but met him personally in 1988 when, as an assistant state attorney, Perry filed to run for a circuit judgeship against an incumbent. "HE STOPPED and chatted with me, and we had a nice conversation," he said. "He said ... that the reality of justice is that people have to think they are getting justice. If you don't have a judiciary and a legal system which reflects all segments of the community, then you are going to have a problem because people won't feel they are getting justice, even if they get justice."

There is only one United States Supreme Court, but there are also State Supreme Courts. The U.S. Supreme Court is higher than all other court systems.
Because it is the very highest court in the country. There is no other authority higher then they and their decisions cannot be appealed. Addition: It is spelled out within the united States Constitution that the Supreme Court is the highest Court in the Country.
The hierarchy of federal courts is District Court, Court of Appeals, US Supreme Court. So, the Court of Appeals is the answer. At least if your quest is only specifying the federal judiciary.
Federal and state supreme courts (or their equivalent) are the highest appellate courts in their jurisdiction and have authority to make the final decision on a case under review. Supreme courts usually have what's informally known as "intermediate appellate courts" immediately below them. In the… federal judiciary, the US Supreme Court is higher than the thirteen US Court of Appeals Circuit Courts (intermediate appellate courts). Some of the differences are: . The Supreme Courts set binding precedents for all courts in a given state or nation, whereas intermediate appellate courts only set binding precedents fewer courts or a smaller territory. . Supreme Courts have much more latitude (discretion) over the cases they hear; intermediate appellate courts have mandatory jurisdiction over more types of cases. . There is usually only one supreme court for a given state or nation (although Texas has two), but many intermediate appellate courts. . The intermediate appellate courts here more cases. . Supreme courts consider cases en banc (as a full court); intermediate appellate courts are more likely to assign one judge or a three-judge panel to review a case, although they do occasionally hear cases en banc, as well.

The supreme court is the highest court in the U.S. government. I don't believe that there are actual level in the Supreme Court.
The agreed ruling of more than half of the Supreme Court justices is called a majority decision; the written document is called a majority opinion or the "opinion of the Court."
Because the phrase "Supreme Court" is not in plural form, one can readily determine that there is only one court.
Cumming v. Richmond County Board of Education, 175 US 528 (1899) Cumming was a landmark class action suit that appeared to sanction segregation in public schools; however, this is not quite an accurate interpretation of the decision. Several African-American citizens of Richmond County, Ge…orgia, brought suite against the county school board and the local taxing authority demanding injunctive relief preventing collection of a portion of the taxes levied against them as property owners. The Petitioners objected to paying the part of the tax used to support two "whites-only" high schools after Richmond County closed its private African-American high school. The African-American students were transferred to high schools in the August city school district, which offered comparable facilities. In the Court's opinion, the tax did not discriminate against African-Americans any more than it did the white people in the county, due to a portion of the tax money going to a girls' private school. Justice Harlan asserted, "A taxpayer who has boys and no girls of a school age has as much right to complain of the unequal distribution of the taxes to a girls' high school as have these plaintiffs. The action of the board appears to us to be more a discrimination as to sex than it does as to race. While the board appropriates some money to assist a denominational school for white boys and girls, it has never established a high school for white boys, and, if the contention of these plaintiffs is correct, white parents who have boys old enough to attend a high school have as much right to complain as these plaintiffs..." With regard to segregation, the Court stated the Plaintiffs had not raised the question of the "separate but equal" doctrine and, therefore, the Court could not rule on that issue. Finally, the Court concluded that public taxation for the purpose of supporting the schools was a state's rights issue that fell outside federal jurisdiction, except in cases of "clear and unmistakable disregard of rights secured by the supreme law of the land." The Court lacked jurisdiction over the tax issue, and affirmed the judgment of the State. While the US Supreme Court did not rule on the constitutionality of the "separate but equal" doctrine established under Plessy v. Ferguson, (1896), the practice of segregation was supported by implication. Brown v. Board of Education, (1954) overturned de jure segregation, which was touched upon in Cumming v. Richmond, in that the private schools discussed in Richmond would eventually be required to integrate, rendering the tax apportionment moot. For more information, see Related Questions, below.

Why did President Roosevelt try to pack the US Supreme Court with justices who supported the New Deal?
FDR packed supreme court with judges who were sympathetic to his New Deal because his New Deal allowed Congress to begin spending government money and he needed people who supported his idea of "Keynesian economics" or the tax and spend policy which allowed the government to spend beyond its means. … For more information, see Related Questions, below.

Yes, for the most part . The US Supreme Court has both original (trial) and appellate (appeals) jurisdiction, but most cases reach the Court on appeal. The Supreme Court currently hears only disputes between the states under original jurisdiction.

the court that is directly below the U.S supreme court is the U.S Court of Appeals
The US Supreme Court has "the supreme power" because the Framers of the Constitution stated in Article III, Section 1, that "The judicial power of the United States, shall be vested in one Supreme Court, and in such inferior courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish." It w…as necessary to make one body the ultimate authority on federal and constitutional law and treaties to establish uniform interpretation of the laws so the federal court system would make consistent decisions. This intentionally differed from English common law in that the English system of that time allowed each court to set its own precedents, creating a situation where laws could be applied differently or unfairly, depending on where a person was tried.

The judicial branch system plays a major role in the supreme court. This is known as the federal court in general.
The US Supreme Court is an appellate court, and therefore does not try cases or determine facts of the case, rather it interprets facts of law, and may grant new trials. There is no right to an appeal in front of the Supreme Court, it has discretionary authority, and will only grant writs of certior…ari in cases of prominence involving the US Constitution. The other courts of appeals in the federal system are the Circuit Courts, which must hear cases. However, in some states, such as New York, the Supreme Court is the trial court, the lowest court in the jurisdiction. ( Full Answer )

How would the role of the Supreme Court change if the President of the US was able to remove justices who did not support his policy agenda?
The Supreme Court would not be able to declare any of the President's actions unconstitutional, for fear of being removed. The system of checks and balances would be broken.
State supreme courts cannot lawfully overturn US Supreme Court decisions, per the Supremacy Clause of Article VI of the Constitution. The only ways a decision may be overturned is by the Supreme Court itself or by constitutional amendment.

The Supreme Court was wary of FDR's programs because the size of the federal government that they would create was unprecedented in American history. Also, many of his programs had little Constitutional basis (that is not to say that they were specifically anti-Constitution, but were neutral as far …as the document was concerned. When the Supreme Court began to consider ruling the programs unconstitutional, however, FDR passed a law increasing the number of justices to fifteen. He then began to submit applications for justices he wanted on the court to fill the new six slots and give him a majority. When the nine sitting justices saw this threat to their power, they relented on the New Deal programs provided that no new justices would join the court. ( Full Answer )
It depends. The task of writing the majority opinion is assigned to different judges. Different judges can join the majority opinion, or if they choose, can write a concurring opinion where they may agree with the outcome but may want to express his opinion differently than the majority. Dissenting …judges can also write opinions stating why they disagree with the majority opinion. In theory, you could have nine different opinions issued in a single case (One majority, four concurring, four dissenting). ( Full Answer )

The Supreme Court ruling in Plessy V. Ferguson supported segregation laws by enforcing the doctrine of separate but equal. This meant that blacks and whites could be segregated legally in any public place. The rulling was overturned after the decision of Brown Vs. The Board of Education.
President Franklin D. Roosevelt took office in 1933, in the depths of the Great Depression. To quickly alleviate immediate human needs for food and shelter as well as to stabilize the economy, Roosevelt created many new and innovative programs, known collectively as the New Deal. The New Deal progra…ms were generally passed easily and quickly in Congress, especially in FDR's first 100 days in office. However, many of the programs, including the National Industrial Recovery Act, the Railroad Retirement Act, and the Agricultural Adjustment Act, were then struck down by the Supreme Court as exceeding the powers granted to the federal government under the U.S. Constitution. After FDR's overwhelming victory in the 1936 Presidential election, he felt confident in proposing legislation that in effect would allow him to counter the negative opinion of New Deal reforms by the current Supreme Court. Although there were other judicial reforms in the bill, the crucial provision was one which would have allowed the President to appoint an additional member to the Supreme Court for every sitting justice over the age of 70, which would have resulted in a total of six new justices at the time the bill was introduced. This bill was referred to negatively as the "court-packing plan". Of course, FDR's concern was not about the age of the justices but about his frustration with their conservative interpretation of the Constitution about the role of the national government. At the time FDR announced his plan, only one of the Justices on the Supreme Court (Harlan Stone) had been appointed by FDR. Two had been appointed by Woodrow Wilson, a Democrat, but a strong majority (six out of nine) had been appointed by conservative Republican Presidents Taft, Harding and Hoover. Not all of the Justices voted in accordance with the views of the president who had appointed them, but there was a consistent majority voting to strike down New Deal legislation. By adding more justices of his own choosing who adhered to his broader view of federal powers under the Constitution, FDR planned to create a Supreme Court with a majority in favor of his innovative programs. To FDR's surprise, his plan was sharply criticized not only by lawyers and legislators, but also the public. People understood that in fact FDR was seeking to control the Supreme Court, which under the Constitution was supposed to be a co-equal branch of the federal government. Public support for the plan existed was eroded further by the publishing of a Supreme Court opinion (on a case decided before the court-packing plan was announced), upholding Washington State's Minimum Wage law, and then by the retirement of Justice Van Devanter in June of 1937, allowing FDR to appoint a Justice more compatible with his views. FDR's "court-packing plan" was never passed into law. ( Full Answer )
