when the Supreme court decides to hear a case, the petitioner and the respondent each prepare a written brief. In case where the outcome will affect a group, but the group is not involved in the case, a "friend of the court" brief may be requested.

Who can attend the Supreme Court hearing?

A plaintiff or defendant in a federal court case (or in a state court case where a Federal Constitutional issue is in dispute ) who wants to appeal to the Supreme Court of the United States may ask for a writ of certiorari. The U.S. Supreme Court is obligated to take certain cases on appeal (for example, capital murder cases) but has discretion to take or not take certain others. The writ of certiorari is the Supreme Court's written agreement to take one of those discretionary cases on appeal.


Who was the recent impeachment of the justices in the supreme court?

I'm not sure what you're trying to ask, but there was no recent impeachment of US Supreme Court justices. The only justice ever impeached was Samuel Chase, in 1804. Chase was acquitted at his Senate trial in 1805 and continued serving on the Court until his death in 1811. For more information, see Related Questions, below.


How are cases presented to supreme court justice?

That depends on what you mean by "presented."Cases are typically appealed to the US Supreme Court on a petition for a writ of certiorari, which includes a legal brief prepared by the attorney or attorneys for the petitioner (similar to a plaintiff). The respondent(s)' attorney(s) may oppose the petition with their own brief.If the Court grants certiorari, the case may be scheduled for oral argument, allowing each side 30 minutes to explain to the justices why their client should prevail. During oral argument, the justices ask questions about the case or relevant precedents and points of law (although the justices are often better prepared than the attorneys, already know the answers to the questions, and may have already decided how they are going to vote after case conference).

How do you intervene in a federal court case?

I'm not sure what you mean by 'intervene'. If you mean, become a party to the case, you would have to have some reason to do so. For example, if two people were suing over ownership of a piece of property and you figure out it's really yours, then you might have grounds to intervene. The court would have to decide if you have standing to do so. Now, if by 'intervene' you mean submit a friend of the court brief, you have to ask the court for permission, and there may be restrictions, e.g. to ask the U.S Supreme Court for permission to submit a third-party brief you have to be an attorney licensed to practice and a member of the bar of the Supreme Court.
