A History of the Supreme Court of the US. This video covers the history of the Supreme Court from the its earliest ruling until the end of the 20th century. The court has changed over time and this video tells that story.
This week Craig Benzine talks about what happens when a case makes it to the Supreme Court of the United States (or the SCOTUS). We're going to focus on court procedure today. We talk about how to petition to get your case heard, how written arguments, or briefs, are made, what actually happens on the courtroom floor, and of course the variety of ways the SCOTUS issues opinions on cases.
