The Supreme Courtby Patricia Ryon Quiri, Patricia Ryon Quiri
The Supreme Court is one of the three branches of the federal government, each of which is designed to provide a check and balance of the other two. Over the years the number of justices on the Supreme Court have varied. They are chosen by the President and approved by the Senate. John Marshall, the fourth Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, helped make the Supreme Court powerful and respected in the early nineteenth century. In the years that followed, numerous landmark Supreme Court decisions changed the way our nation looks at states' rights, civil rights, and other issues.
