The judicial branch does not make policy so much as to saw whether a current law is legal or illegal. This process is called judicial review and has been the main purpose of the Supreme Court since Marbury v. Madison. The court simply defines whether a law - state or federal - is constitutional or not. The court ruled against segregation in public school in Brown v. Board of Education and ruled for the right of a womans choice in Roe v. Wade and most recently over turned DC's anti-hand gun law feeling it violated a citizens 2nd Amendment, the right to bear arms. So outside their rulings on already created rules they have no say.
