    Question: What is the purpose of the Supreme Court?

    Answer: The Supreme Court of the United States acts as the highest authority in the 3rd branch of our government---the judicial branch. Its job is to interpret the Constitution and in doing so, it decides cases in which there needs to be an important clarification in the law. There are nine justices on the Court and they hear cases that have been appealed through the justice system. Thus, when the Court rules in a case, that ruling is the last resort for the defendants. The Court is an important part of our government, intended to be free from political influence and therefore able to make crucial decisions about the law and how it is applied.

    I disagree with Renee. I have no choice who i want to be the president but i believe that it will take several years to get out of the war. Yes, we are trying now but look at how many years we have been trying to put this to an end. Obamas purpose is to try and get us to think the war will come right to an end but it could take months even years to actually get out altogether out of iraq and the middle east. thank you.

    The supreme court is the final arbitor of the lower courts. Their authority is binding on the lower courts in the same jurisdiction. Therefore, if they make a ruling the lower courts must follow their order, present and future.
