The Importance Of The Supreme Court

Satisfactory Essays
The Supreme Court is to interpret the constitution and the constitutionality of the laws, not to implement public policy. Implementing policies and laws is the job of congress, not the courts. The states should decide what the legal definition of marriage should or should not be. It is a matter dealing with the everyday lives of others. That responsibility is given to the states, which we have seen in the textbook. Congress, not the Supreme Court, makes laws and it is up to the states to put them into practice. This is why I believe the Supreme Court overstepped its authority.
