The Importance of a Supreme Court Ruling

When it
comes to the Supreme Court, it can be said that the decisions made at this
particular court cannot be overturned. A Supreme Court ruling cannot be
overturned by any particular entity, which includes the President of the United
States and Congress.

In the
Constitution, the United States Supreme Court is essentially granted the power
of the “supreme law of the land,” and all of its decisions are meant
to be final. For this reason alone the Supreme Court has the power to hear
cases from other jurisdictions to render the final decision in matters of
dispute regarding decisions made by lower courts.

However,
there is one particular situation in which a Supreme Court ruling can be
overturned. A Supreme Court ruling can only be overturned by the Supreme Court
itself. Such a situation will prove to be rare.
