This chapter examines the dynamics of the relationship between the US federal courts of appeal and the US Supreme Court. It discusses the jurisdictional framework, main operational arrangements, and the different, but overlapping roles played by the two levels of courts. It argues that although much of the debate over possible change in the US federal appellate system is cast in technical terms, the status quo and revisions to it also implicate important political questions about the distribution of power and government services.
