19: Motions and Their Role in Criminal Cases Section I: The Basic Procedures. 4. How can this book help me understand the criminal rules and proceedings in my locality? This book describes the criminal justice system as it tends to operate throughout the country. But each state, as well as the federal government, has its own set of criminal laws and procedures. Thus, if you need to know the terms of a specific law, or the procedures your local court will follow, you will need to consult the rules for your jurisdiction. State courts carry such titles as superior court, municipal court, police court or county court, depending on the state and the seriousness of criminal charges.
The Supreme Court of the United States handles the most important court cases in our country, so famous Supreme Court decisions have helped shape our country’s history. The Court has tremendous powers to impact laws that everyday citizens will abide by for years to come. Obergefell v. Hodges was a landmark Supreme Court case that held same-sex couples had a fundamental right to marry as guaranteed by the Due Process Clause and the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. The famous Supreme Court case made it possible for same-sex couples to get married in all fifty states, and the ruling required all fifty states to lawfully perform and recognize same-sex marriages on the same terms and conditions as opposite-sex marriages.
McCleskey v. Kemp, 481 . 279 (1987), was a United States Supreme Court case, in which the death penalty sentencing of Warren McCleskey for armed robbery and murder was upheld. The Court said the "racially disproportionate impact" in the Georgia death penalty indicated by a comprehensive scientific study was not enough to overturn the guilty verdict without showing a "racially discriminatory purpose.
The Supreme Court does not "hear" criminal matters directly, because it is primarily an appellate court. As an appellate court, the SCOTUS does resolve questions of legal interpretation that apply to criminal matters - though that's not usually what people mean when they talk about "hearing" a case. First, the SCOTUS has jurisdiction in ALL matters of criminal law under the Federal government. That means that SCOTUS, on any case, at any time, can elect to 'try the merits' and thereby "hear criminal cases". The fact that Congress has created a series of lesser Federal courts to "hear criminal matters" does not remove the SCOTUS prerogative to do so.
