Zusammenfassung

Der Supreme Court gilt als das älteste und zugleich mächtigste Verfassungsgericht der Welt, dessen Entscheidungen immer wieder weitreichende politische Konsequenzen gehabt haben. Oftmals treten die Urteile sogar als Ersatz an die Stelle ausbleibender Entscheidungen der politischen Gewalten. Umgekehrt steht das Gericht daher auch in der Kritik der Öffentlichkeit. Untersucht werden Aufbau, Funktionsweise und Urteilsfindung des Supreme Court im Rahmen des politischen Systems der USA.
