For decades, the U.S. president has been one of the most powerful and influential people on the planet. But the president is by no means the only master of democracy – the Supreme Court, with its famous justices, is another U.S. power broker, one that often decides the fates of millions of peoples’ lives. In this quiz, what do you really know about the Supreme Court?
The Supreme Court has decided major cases in the country’s history. In 1973, it took on the challenges of Roe v. Wade, which became a landmark case on abortion and the right to privacy. In 1966, it addressed Miranda v. Arizona, which created important changes with regard to due process and self-incrimination.
Do you recall other landmark Supreme Court cases? They include the likes of Brown v. Board of Education, Marbury v. Madison, Plessy v. Ferguson and a lot more.
The justices who wield such incredible power are often under intense scrutiny, particularly during the confirmation process. Their political leanings and intellectual fortitude can shape (or destroy) aspects of our society.
