How many US Supreme Court justices were there in 1787?

AnswerSix or zero, depending on your perspective. Six justices (one Chief Justice and five Associate Justices) were appointed in September 1789, but the Supreme Court didn't convene for the first time until 1790. The Supreme Court had been created on paper in 1789, but did not exist as an institution until the following year.ExplanationThe first bill enacted in the U.S. Congress was the Judiciary Act of 1789, legislation that established the federal court system, including the US Supreme Court. The Act called for a total of six members, a Chief Justice and five Associate Justices, who were officially headquartered in the nation's capitol.President Washington nominated the first six justices, and the Senate confirmed his nominations within a few days, in September 1789. The US Supreme Court did not convene for the first time until February 2, 1790, however.The first Court was supposed to assemble at the Royal Exchange Building in New York City (the temporary U.S. Capital from 1783-1790) on February 1, 1790, but transportation problems delayed the initial meeting by one day, so the first session actually began on February 2, 1790.Chief Justice:John Jay, New YorkAssociate Justices:John Rutledge, South CarolinaWilliam Cushing, MassachusettsJames Wilson, PennsylvaniaJohn Blair, VirginiaJames Iredell, North Carolina

When was the last time the US Supreme Court exercised original jurisdiction?

The US Supreme Court is currently (2009 Term) considering a dispute between North Carolina and South Carolina over the apportionment of water rights over the Catawba River, which flows between both states.The instant case is particularly compelling because it also raises the question of whether third-party private interests should be allowed to intervene in disputes between the states.In South Carolina v. North Carolina, which is currently before the bench, the Special Master appointed by the Court, Kristin Linsley Myles, partner in the law firm Munger, Tolles & Olson, recommended that Duke Energy Carolinas, the city of Charlotte, N.C., and the Catawba River Supply Project be permitted to participate as parties to the suit because they each had a compelling interest in the outcome.This decision would benefit North Carolina over South Carolina, and was appealed by South Carolina. The US Solicitor General's office supports South Carolina in the appeal. The concern Chief Justice Roberts raised is whether the intervention of third-party interests would "hijack our original jurisdiction."The options appear to be observing the rules of civil procedure (which are not binding on the Court in original jurisdiction disputes), following the "rule of permissive intervention," a question Justice Ginsburg raised (but does not appear to advocate); or the Court hearing the case de novo (as new), as argued by South Carolina's counsel. The Court appears to favor the latter approach, although no decision has been made.The most likely (although certainly not assured) outcome is that the Court will vote to hear the case de novo, rather than set a precedent of allowing private interests to become party to disputes between the states, but permit the interested parties to submit amici (friend of the court briefs).Justice Ginsburg raised a significant Constitutional point that may resolve the issue, in light of South Carolina's resistance to the intervention: A state "can't be sued without its consent. And it's true here that South Carolina is initiating the action, but it's initiating the action against a sister state. The special master's recommendation would require the state to have as its direct adversary three parties who are not a sister state, and that kind of dilutes the notion of original jurisdiction. It's a controversy between two states."

The South Carolina Supreme Court has never issued such a ruling.
