The Supreme Court of the United States decides the constitutionality (whether it follows the Constitution) of any law that is part of a case being reviewed under their appellate jurisdiction. The decision of the Supreme Court is final.

In the Supreme Court, the written decision and legal reasoning for a case is called an Opinion.


If there is a problem with the constitutionally of a law the Supreme Court makes the decision. The president has no power.


The main thing that the Supreme Court does is to decide landmark cases. Each year, it hears about 7,000 cases, and makes a final decision on each.


It's divided between the President (Obama), the Congress, and the Supreme Court.


Yes, unless they can distinguish their case from the case the Supreme Court decided. For more information, see Related Questions, below.


Since it is the Supreme Court that decides what is constitutional and what is not, the decisions of the Supreme Court cannot be unconstitutional, however, it is always possible for the Supreme Court to make new decisions which reverse older decisions. So in theory, if the Supreme Court does something wrong, they will be reversed by a later sitting of the same court (but with new judges).


no... Once the U. S. Supreme Court makes a decision in the interpretation of a law or a part of the Constitution, a precedent is set, and their decision holds the same weight as the original law. The President can no more overturn a Supreme Court decision than he/she can make a new law without Congress. The President can, however, sign into law a bill that has passed both houses of Congress that repeals or modifies a law or Constitutional clause on which a Supreme Court decision has been rendered, thereby, in effect, overriding the Supreme Court.


The supreme court is the highest ranked court in the nation once you are elected to be on the supreme court you are on there until you resign or die there's nine people on the supreme court and if a court case makes it to there court then these nine people make the last and final decisionAdded: Short and simple answer: It is the highest Court of Appeals in the United States.


The US Supreme Court determines what is and is not constitutional, not Congress. If the Supreme Court makes a decision Congress opposes, they can write legislation to circumvent the decision, modify current legislation to comply with the letter of the ruling, or attempt to initiate a new constitutional amendment to overrule the decision (unlikely). Although they are not supposed to, Congress may thwart the Supreme Court by failing to pass legislation supporting the Court's decision.


No, the US Supreme Court only reviews Executive Orders under its appellate jurisdiction, so someone would have to initiate a case challenging the order in US District Court first. If the decision of the District Court judge is appealed, the case typically goes to the US Supreme Court on direct appeal (skipping the Circuit Court), under the theory that both sides will fight an unfavorable decision until the Supreme Court makes a final decision, anyway.The Supreme Court never reviews Executive Orders on its own authority.


There is only one Supreme Court, while there are thousands of regular courts.The Supreme Court makes the final decision on all cases which gain appeal to it. Therefore, once the Supreme Court has made a decision it is final.The only way a Supreme Court decision can be appealed is by the case again going through the whole process of appeal through the lower "regular" courts then coming up again to the Supreme Court. Even then the Supreme Court can rule that it has already ruled on such a case, and therefore will not hear the appeal.That is partly why the Supreme Court is known as the "court of last resort."For more information about the federal court system, see Related Questions, below.


The Supreme Court of the United States (aka US Supreme Court) is the ultimate arbiter of constitutionality and makes the final decision to nullify (or void) a law.


The US Supreme Court lacks the ability to enforce its own decisions, which is a check on the Judicial Branch of government. The Executive Branch is vested with the authority and obligation to enforce Supreme Court decisions, and the Legislative branch can support a decision by passing laws upholding the Court's finding.

The Supreme Court determines what contradicts the Constitution. So it supposedly isn't possible for them to rule against it. If people don't like the decision of the Supreme Court, they can pass laws and/or amend the Constitution to change it. Congress would be who would overrule it, particularly members who were there when they passed whatever law. The Court is not allowed to put words in the mouth of Congress.

Any court in the US may review and determine the constitutionality of laws relevant to a case before the court. The Supreme Court of the United States (aka US Supreme Court) is the ultimate authority on the US Constitution, and makes the final decision.


It is the decision, or verdict, that the court makes. i want to go on vacation you bozos


Judicial review makes up the Supreme Court power. Its power is detailed in the Article of Three of the Constitution.


A United States Supreme Court decision is mandatory on all lower federal courts. That includes federal courts of appeal and federal district courts.


Maybe nothing. If a party to the decision appeals, the lower court could get overturned. Also, if in a subsequent case a party relies on the lower court decision, a court could choose not to follow it or a higher court could overturn it.If the supreme court makes a ruling, lower courts are obliged to follow it. Any judge who fails to do so can find his rulings overturned. Basically, that means the losing side can go to another judge, point out that the first judge's decision contradicts the supreme court, and ask to have that decision set aside.One of the most important factors in a judicial system is consistency - laws need to be applied in the same way everywhere they are applied.


Federalism in America allows for the Supreme Court which is the highest authority in the union to have final decision matters over individual states.


There is no where else to appeal to. The United States Supreme Court is the highest court of the land. When cases are appealed, they're appealed to a higher court. Hence, if a case started in a standard state court, it would be appealed to the state appellate court. If it were appealed a second time, it would be heard by the state's supreme court. After a third appeal (we're assuming all of these appeals were accepted by the courts), the case would be heard in front of the U.S Supreme Court. The fact that there is no higher court makes the idea of an appeal impossible, thus the U.S Supreme Court's decision is final.


The Supreme Court is very powerful and the justices serve for life. There are only 9 of them and the controversial decisions are made by a 5-4 vote. So, one vote makes the decision. If a vacancy in the court occurs , it is very important to appoint a suitable replacement.


Trial by jury is a right in the lower courts that does not apply in appeals courts or the Supreme Court. The jury makes findings of fact and fact is no longer in issue on appeal.
