About Supreme Court of the United States in brief
The Supreme Court of the United States is the highest court in the federal judiciary. It has ultimate appellate jurisdiction over all federal and state court cases that involve a point of federal law. The Court holds the power of judicial review, the ability to invalidate a statute for violating a provision of the Constitution. Each justice has lifetime tenure, meaning they remain on the Court until they resign, retire, die, or are removed from office.. The composition and procedures of the Supreme Court were initially established by the 1st Congress through the Judiciary Act of 1789. The Supreme Court held its inaugural session from February 2 through February 10, 1790, at the Royal Exchange in New York City, then the U.S. capital. The earliest sessions of the court were devoted to organizational proceedings, as the first cases did not reach it until 1791. As the Court initially had only six members, every decision that it made within two years was made by a majority of two-thirds. However, Congress has always allowed less than full membership to make decisions, starting with a quorum of four justices in 1789 in Georgia v. Cholm. The court’s first decision was West v. Barnes, which was reversed by the adoption of the Elem v. Georgia ruling in 1790. The first decision involving West v Barnes was heard in 1791; its first case involving procedure was in 1794. The case involved the case of West v West, a case involving the procedure involving West and West, in which a State shall be Party to the case. It was decided in favor of West, but the case was overturned by the decision of the Georgia Supreme Court in 1795.
The decision was reversed two years later by the Georgia Court of Appeals, which reversed the decision within the two years by adoption of Georgia v Chol m v. West, and the case went on to be heard in Georgia. The Court meets in the Supreme court Building in Washington, D. C. Its law enforcement arm is the Supreme Courts Police, which is responsible for investigating misconduct by members of the judicial branch of the federal government, including the White House, Congress, and state and local governments. It has jurisdiction over a narrow range of cases, specifically \”all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those inWhich a State Shall be Party\”. The Court may decide cases having political overtones, but it has ruled that it does not have power to decide non-justiciable political questions. It is the country’s highest judicial tribunal, and would initially be composed of a chief justice and five associate justices. The act also divided the country into judicial districts, which were in turn organized into circuits. Justices were required to \”ride circuit\” and hold circuit court twice a year in their assigned judicial district. The justices were initially appointed by President George Washington, who nominated the following people to serve on the court: John Jay for chief justice, John Rutledge, William Cushing, Robert H. Harrison, James Wilson, and John Blair Jr.
