Best Answer

Supreme Court Justices, Associate Justices of the Supreme Court -- although, the head of the courts are called:

  • The US Supreme Court - Chief Justice of the United States (since 1866 when it was changed from Chief Justice of the Supreme Court).
  • The various state Supreme Courts - Chief Justice of the State of (state name).

But, not all states call their highest court the "Supreme Court." Some use "Court of Appeals," "Superior Court," "Supreme Judicial Court," and Texas and Oklahoma divide criminal and civil supreme courts by calling them (respectively) The Court of Criminal Appeals and The Supreme Court. Nomenclature will follow the trends in the individual states.
