The Supreme Court

 

 

 Supreme Court

The United States Supreme Court is the final arbiter of the Consitutionality of governmental action. The cases before it reflect legal issues that are at the very core of our system of justice. The Court's decisions demonstrate the delicate balance between the need for stability of law and the need for law to grow and adapt to changes in society.
