Overview

These three volumes contain the only collection of all substantive decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court under its original jurisdiction. This is a unique publication.

Under the U.S. Constitution, the Supreme Court considers certain cases directly without taking them as an appeal from lower courts. These cases involve the United States and individual states and state against state. Cases between states may not be considered in any other court; the Supreme Court’s jurisdiction is exclusive.
