Federal judges are not elected and have, essentially, lifetime appointments. Federal judges are, therefore, insulated from the direct political pressures of elections. The courts also have “reactive” powers. In other words, courts do not exercise their powers until parties bring their disputes to the courts in the form of litigation. In addition, if the parties to the dispute settle, then the courts do not exercise their powers at all. Finally, the courts are constrained by the facts of specific cases and bound by the law. This means that they make decisions on a case- by-case basis and are expected to justify decisions on the basis of the law. Section 14.1 National Judicial Supremacy Fill in the blanks: _Section II article III of the Constitution vests the judicial power of the United States in ______________________. The federal court system was created by ____________________ based on authority granted to it in Article ____________ of the Constitution.

    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.
