What We know about the Supreme Court so far By Ms Dickerson’s Class
Nine Judges sit on the Supreme Court.
The president appoints the Judges.
The Congress has to confirm the president’s choice.
The Judges serve until they die or retire.
They base their decisions on the laws and rules of the Constitution. They are concerned with the fact if rulings of lower courts have violated the rules of the Constitution.
If there is a problem in the executive branch with the President it goes to the Supreme court and they decide it.
If there is a problem in the Legislative branch with the Congress it goes to the Supreme court and they decide it.
They decide for our life and our rights. The Supreme court is the highest court. They decide whether we can have a law, we cannot if they decide it violates our constitution.
A decision is made if there is a majority. It there is a tie the lower courts decision stands ( not the Supreme court)
