Who rules on matters affecting the state's constitution?

Maine</a> in 2001. The Supreme Court has another case-between-states, <i>South Carolina v. North Carolina</i>, scheduled for argument in October 2009.


After the 2000 election the Supreme Court ruled that?

After the 2000 election the Supreme Court ruled that a candidate could not choose which precincts would be recounted. A recount had to include all votes equally. The Legislature had to standardize voting and recounting throughout an entire state. How a recount would be held would not be an administrative or judicial decision but a legislative decision. 10 years later Tammany Hall still runs the elections in New York City. In spite of the fact that they are well represented on the US Supreme Court, New Yorkers do not believe that Supreme Court decisions apply to them. Californians have the same opinion.
