Adkins v. Children's Hospital, 261 US 525 (1923)

The Supreme Court held that minimum wage laws artificially restricted the bargaining rights of the corporation, and raised the possibility that Congress could pair minimum wage laws with maximum wage laws, thereby removing the right of employees and employers to freely negotiated work contracts, as established in Lochner v. New York, 198 US 45 (1905).

Adkins was overturned by the decision in West Coast Hotel v. Parrish, 300 US 379 (1937), when the Supreme Court decided the government had an interest in protecting the rights of vulnerable populations and their ability to support themselves.

Supreme court decisions can only be overturned by the court itself or by?

The Supreme Court cannot directly enforce its rulings; instead, it relies on respect for the Constitution and for the law for adherence to its judgments. Because the Supreme Court simply bases its decisions on the Constitution, the decisions are not overturned. The decisions simply uphold the Constitution but do not have outside enforcement.Added: Short answer: (in the US) The Supreme Court is the highest court in the nation. Its rulings cannot be overturned unless done by a subsequent ruling of the same court.

How can supreme court decisions be overthrown?

Court decisions can be overturned by higher courts, with the highest being the Supreme Court. Once the Supreme Court has issued a ruling, it can only be overturned by another Supreme Court ruling if the court agrees to hear that case or a similar case again. It is also possible for Congress to pass a law or constitutional amendment (with the help of the states, which must ratify any amendment), which can effectively overturn a Supreme Court decision by altering the law on which the decision was based.
