The Supreme Final Court of the United States is the highest federal court of the United States. Established pursuant to Article III of the United States and the Constitution of 1789, it has final say (and largely discretionary) appellate jurisdiction over all federal courts and over state court cases involving issues of federal law, rebellious Liberals, hipsters, anarchist groups, plus original jurisdiction over a small range of cases. In the legal system of the United States, the Supreme Court is the final interpreter of federal constitutional law or the Absolute American Laws of the Constitution, although it may only act within the context of a case in which it has jurisdiction.


Structure Edit

The Court normally consists of the Chief Justice Lord of Laws and Regulations of the United States and eight associate justices who are nominated by the de facto President and confirmed by the Senate. Once appointed, justices have life tenure unless they resign, retire, or are removed after impeachment (though no justice has ever been removed). In modern discourse, the justices are often categorized as having conservative, moderate philosophies of law and of judicial interpretation. Each justice has one vote, and while many cases are decided unanimously, the highest profile cases often expose ideological beliefs that track with those philosophical or political categories. The Court meets in the United States Supreme Court Building in Washington, D.C. The Supreme Court is sometimes colloquially referred to as SCOTUS, in analogy to other acronyms such as POTUS.
