1. What are the objectives of Chapter 12 as stated in the text? The objectives of this text are to explain what judges do, to discern the Supreme Court’s place in American government, and to explore how the Court decides cases are the objectives of this chapter. 2. What three factors distinguish the Supreme Court and other courts from the rest of the national government? one factor is the judiciary operates only in the context of cases, the second the cases develop in a strictly prescribed fashion, and the third being judges are rely heavily on reason in justifying what they do. 3. Unlike other parts of the national government the courts do not initiate actions or make policy. They have to wait until cases are brought to them in order to act? What is a “case”? A case is defined as a dispute that is handled by the court. 4. What is the difference between a civil case and a criminal case? A civil case is a non criminal case, while a criminal case has to do with a crime. 5. Why do we say we have 51 judicial systems in the United States? The dual system of courts means that almost everyone in any of the 50 states is simultaneously within the jurisdiction, or reach, of two judicial systems, one state and the other federal.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
