One Supreme Court

Supremacy, Inferiority, and the Judicial Department of the United States

James E Pfander

  • A detailed and persuasive exploration of exactly what the Framers intended while shaping the various provisions concerning congressional power to control federal jurisdiction
  • The author is recognized as one of the elite scholars of federal jurisdiction in general and congressional power to control (or not to control) federal jurisdiction in particular
  • The author provides both a textual basis (the requirement that courts and tribunals be inferior to the Supreme Court) and an historical argument (connecting the use of prerogative writs by supreme courts to control inferior courts) to under gird a more robust view of the Supreme Court's constitutionally-protected role
