History, Justices, and Decisions


The Supreme Court

The Supreme Court of the United States is known as "The Highest Court in the Land," and not without reason. When the Supreme Court decides a case, there is no further appeal. The Supreme Court currently consists of nine Justices, who hold their positions for life, are appointed by the President, and must be confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

This section of the History Guy Website will include pages and posts on the Justices of the Supreme Court, the legal decisions of the Supreme Court, and Supreme Court news.
