Best Answer

A plaintiff or defendant in a federal court case (or in a state court case where a Federal Constitutional issue is in dispute ) who wants to appeal to the Supreme Court of the United States may ask for a writ of certiorari. The U.S. Supreme Court is obligated to take certain cases on appeal (for example, capital murder cases) but has discretion to take or not take certain others. The writ of certiorari is the Supreme Court's written agreement to take one of those discretionary cases on appeal.

What does it mean by 'What is the scope of the US Supreme Court'?

The Supreme Court can not hear every type of case. Article III, section 2 of the Constitution lays out the scope of the Supreme Court's jurisdiction. You should be aware that the Supreme Court almost never asserts original jurisdiction, instead hearing nearly all cases (except disputes between different states) on appeal.
