US Supreme Court session opens

Today, the US Supreme Court opened its 222nd annual session.  By federal law, the court opens on the first Monday in October.  Each session usually ends in late June or early July.  Our constitution established the US Supreme Court.  Congress has the power to create other “inferior” courts.  Those include federal district and appeals courts, and state supreme and appeals courts.  In Pennsylvania, the lower Courts of Common Pleas operate on the county level.  Common pleas courts supervise local district magistrates.
