Chapter 2

THE SUPREME COURT'S AUTHORITY

This Chapter examines several aspects of the Supreme Court's authority.

  •     Supreme Court review: It is the Supreme Court, not Congress, which has the authority and duty to review the constitutionality of statutes passed by Congress, and to invalidate the statute if it violates the Constitution.
  •     Review of state court decisions: The Supreme Court may review state court decisions, but only to the extent that the decision was based on federal law.
