Question and answer
The role of the Supreme Court in protecting civil liberties, including the judicial philosophy which should guide the Court in this role, and (What do you think the Supreme Court should do or is
doing? Are they making the right choice? Why?)
The Supreme Court sets is own agenda, hearing about 200 of 5,000 cases appealed to it annually. Another 150 or so cases are decided by summary judgment, giving a ruling without an explanatory opinion. [ If four justices of the nine agree ("the rule of four"), a case is granted certiori, which instructs the lower court to turn over all records of the case to the Supreme Court. This is followed by
hearing arguments, which include briefs from attorneys on both sides. Interest groups may also file amicus curiae briefs in further support of one side or another. If the U.S. government is involved in the case, the government will be represented by the Solicitor General. Actual decisions are made in conference, after which a justice in the majority is selected to write an opinion. Other majority justices may write concurring opinions, while justices in the minority may write one or more dissenting opinions. ]
