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.
