Article III: The Judicial Branch
Transcript of Article III: The Judicial Branch
Once a member of the Judicial Branch retires, dies, or is removed, their place in the Supreme Court becomes open to anyone who is trained in law and is appointed by the president. Once the president selects a candidate, that person is then interviewed and questioned by a panel of Senate members who, once the questioning is done, can either approve or deny the candidate's entry into the Supreme Court.
The Preamble is a list of what people are going to have the government accomplish and enforce.
The Judicial Power
Supreme Court Justices
There are 9 members of the Supreme Court Justices;
How the Supreme Court gets cases
The Supreme Court must wait for cases from lower courts.
Parties must petition the Court for a writ of certiorari
A writ (order) of a higher court to a lower court to send all the documents in a case to it so the higher court can review the lower court's decision
It is the Court's custom and practice to "grant cert" if four of the nine Justices decide that they should hear the case.
Of the approximately 7,500 requests for certiorari filed each year, the Court usually grants cert to fewer than 150.
These are typically cases that the Court considers sufficiently important to require their review; a common example is the occasion when two or more of the federal courts of appeals have ruled differently on the same question of federal law.
