US supreme court

The Supreme Court of the United States is the highest federal court in the United States of America. The court has the majestic jurisdiction over all the United State’s laws and come to existence by the U.S Constitution. 

The U.S. Supreme Court includes nine justices in total. One is the chief justice and the rest eight as the associate justices. Supreme court is the final step to take in law proceedings in America and as the final arbiter of the law, the court’s biggest goal is to apply laws within the light of equality to all people.

 On behalf of the United States Constitutional system, the U.S. Supreme Court as the highest judicial body in the country, will be reopening the case to enlighten the path of justice. 

The young woman, Diana Rodriguez was just thirty years old at the time she was maliciously murdered. Allegedly, she was attacked by a large group of individuals and after she died; they put her body in a large rubbish bin. There were five people in total and all of them were of African-American origin. Diana was two months pregnant when she lost her life. 

Some witnesses from prosecution said that they heard screams coming from the alley and beforehand; they saw these group of people approaching Diana Rodriguez. The prosecution also showed a videotape that is linked to the murder in the trial and the District Court of South Carolina convicted these five people.

Years after, petitioners discovered evidence that prosecution hid and that is beneficial to the defense. In post-conviction proceedings, they argued that the evidence that were withheld during the court were favorable to the defense and material to their crime. As a result of “the right to a fair trial” the U.S. Supreme Court has decided to see this case.
