The Supreme Court has overturned precedent dozens of times, including striking down legal segregation and reversing Roe
A demonstrator outside the Supreme Court building expresses fear that other precedents will fall, too. AP Photo/Jose Luis MaganaIt is a central principle of law: Courts, including the Supreme Court, are supposed to follow earlier decisions – precedent – to resolve current disputes. But on rare occasions, Supreme Court justices conclude that one of the court’s past constitutional precedents has to go, so they overrule it. This is exactly what happened in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organizati

The highest court in the nation ruled on Thursday that the Environmental Protection Agency's ability to regulate climate pollution should be limited
During the quarter-century year career on the Supreme Court, Justice Stephen Breyer constantly cultivated two judicial virtues now increasingly absent from the federal bench. The first is a careful, empirical cast of mind, constantly alive to the lived experience of litigants, institutions, and the world.
