Question and answer
Q: The decision of the U.S. Supreme Court on a constitutional issue is considered null and void unless the state governments must amend their laws unofficial until the legislative branch has an
opportunity to edit the related law final unless overturned by a constitutional amendment or new court decision subject to a review by either the executive branch or the legislative branch
A: Judicial review in the United States refers to the power of a court to review the constitutionality of a statute or treaty, or to review an administrative regulation for consistency with either a statute, a treaty, [ or the Constitution itself. The United States Constitution does not explicitly establish the power of judicial review. Rather, the power of judicial review has been inferred from
the structure, provisions, and history of the Constitution.[1] The Supreme Court's landmark decision on the issue of judicial review was Marbury v. Madison (1803),[2] in which the Supreme Court ruled that the federal courts have the duty to review the constitutionality of acts of Congress and to declare them void when they are contrary to the Constitution. Marbury, written by Chief Justice John Marshall, was the first Supreme Court case to strike down an act of Congress as unconstitutional. Since that time, the federal courts have exercised the power of judicial review. Judicial review is now a well settled doctrine. As of 2010, the United States Supreme Court had held unconstitutional some 163 Acts of the U.S. Congress. ]
