Supreme Court Cases

The Supreme Court is made up of 9 justices who are responsible for deciding whether or not laws are in line with the U.S. Constitution.  These individuals serve life-long appointments once they are nominated by the President and confirmed by the United States Senate.  Below are a list of some of the most controversial decisions in the last few decades by the Supreme Court.   These cases are often mentioned by politicians during campaigns because the issues are still debated, even after the Supreme Court’s ruling.
