Supreme Court

The Supreme Court is the highest court in the entire United States. They have the final say on any important court cases that have been appealed on a local and state level, and their decisions have a massive impact on countless aspects of how the United States operates. Supreme Court justices are appointed by the President of the United States, confirmed by the Senate and hold a lifetime appointment (meaning they are justices until they retire or pass away!). Abortion, voting rights and affirmative action have all been issues that the court has decided on in recent years.
