This story is about the Supreme Court’s decision. What process did this case have to go through to get to the Supreme Court? The process by which a case is heard at the Supreme court is as follows: In order for a case to be heard by the Supreme Court, initially it has been filed as a civil case and a verdict has been rendered. Once the jury has reached its verdict, the losing files as appeal at the state appellate level. The state appellate court either party may file an appeal to the next higher level court. When an appeal has been filed, the respective state’s appellate court will decide whether or not to hear the case . Once reviewed, the Court of Appeals judges may hear oral arguments from the attorneys before deciding the case and issuing an opinion. A majority vote (at least two out of three judges in agreement) decides the case. The Court of Appeals judges have three choices when making a decision: •affirm (agree with) the trial court’s decision; •reverse the decision (disagree), or •remand the case and send it back to the trial court for further action or a new trial.

    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.
