The Supreme Court of the United States, Its Business, Purposes and Performance

By Paul A. Freund | Go to book overview

I. THE BUSINESS OF THE COURT

At the 1959 term the Supreme Court of the United States disposed of almost eighteen hundred cases. This bare and arresting figure suggests a number of inquiries. How do these cases reach the Court and what is the process of deliberation and adjudication by which they are translated from items on the docket to controversies disposed of? What are the significant functions of the Court and what are the standards that guide it in the discharge of those functions? What is the larger role of the Court in the symbolism, attachment to which forms the basis of a constitutional system? These questions may be conveniently subsumed under three heads: (1) The Jurisdiction and Administrative Side of the Court; (2) The Court as Arbiter; (3) the Court as Symbol.
