The two ways in which a decision of the US Supreme Court can be overturned are: the court can reverse itself, or the US constitution can be amended.

Supreme Court decisions can only be overturned in two ways:The US Supreme Court can overturn a decision on an earlier case by making a contradictory decision on a current case (or by reversing a current decision).Congress and the States can overturn a decision by amending the US Constitution.

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

The correct name is the Supreme Court of the United States, but most people refer to it as the US Supreme Court. Each state has its own Supreme Court, but the US Supreme Court is the end of the line.

Yes, when there is a preserved federal question involved in the state supreme court's decision. Federal questions like the constitutionality of a state law are allowed to be raised and determined in state courts. If the state action goes to the state supreme court, but one party alleges that the state supreme court decision is wrong because it mistakenly interprets the US Constitution or federal statute, the US Supreme Court may, if it chooses, take an appeal from the state supreme court decision.If the state supreme court decision is based entirely on the state constitution or state statute with no issue of a federal nature, then the US Supreme Court has no jurisdiction and may not hear the case.When the case has been decided by the highest state court of appeals (state Supreme Court), involves a question of federal or constitutional law, and a party to the case has petitioned for a Writ of Certiorari from the US Supreme Court.Likewise, if a case on appeal from a state supreme court is denied a writ of certiorari from the US Supreme Court (as happens 98-99% of the time), the decision of the lower court is final.

ALL lower courts, both state and federal, can be reviewed by the Supreme Court. Every court in the nation is subordinate to the US Supreme Court.

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.

Just because the state doesn't agree, if the US Supreme Court renders a decision in your favor the state must comply! There is no higher court than the US Supreme Court - the state cannot file an appeal.

No. Neither the President nor Congress can overturn a US Supreme Court decision. Congress may rewrite unconstitutional legislation so it complies with the Court's decision. There are only a few ways a decision may be overturned:The Supreme Court may overturn a precedent set by an earlier Court by making a different decision in a later, similar case.The Supreme Court may reverse its own decision on rehearing (rare).Congress and the States may effectively nullify a Supreme Court decision by ratifying a constitutional amendment.

It is the court that has the ultimate decision to appeal any ruling, which in the US would be the Supreme Court.

The opinion of the Court, or the majority (or plurality) opinion, is the formal decision on a case heard by the US Supreme Court.

No, the President of the United States does not have the authority to reverse a Supreme Court decision.

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.

There has to be a supreme court or people would appeal endlessly to a higher court. There has to be a court where the decision is final and there is no higher court to appeal to. The supreme court is there to make a ruling that is the end all decision to stop endless clogging up the overcrowded court system.

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."
