The Supreme Court of the United States is the highest court in the land. For this reason, few cases make it before the Justices every year while the Court is in session.
The Supreme Court has the authority to hear different kinds of cases, including civil and criminal. However, it generally only takes cases with one or more of the following issues:
When a case does not involve these issues, it’s unlikely the Supreme Court will choose to hear it. The Supreme Court is very selective and hears only about 100 to 150 cases out of over 7,000 cases submitted each year.
Typically, a case can make it up to the Supreme Court in one of three ways:
If a case is on appeal, you can submit a petition to the Court for review by asking it to grant a writ of certiorari. When granted, the lower court sends up the records of the case for review.
If the case does not come up from a lower court but rather starts at the Supreme Court, it means the Court has original jurisdiction.
