Description

How did the Supreme Court go from, according to Alexander Hamilton, “beyond comparison the weakest of the three departments of power,” to the grand body that rules on the constitutionality of federal law? Ask Civics 101 takes a closer look at the highest court in the land, appointments and the relationship between party and justice.
