This Day in History: 1789 – The Judiciary Act is passed by Congress and signed by George Washington, establishing the Supreme Court of the United States.

Fact of the Day:  The U.S. Supreme Court was established by Article 3 of the US Constitution. The Constitution granted the Supreme Court ultimate jurisdiction over all laws, especially those in which their constitutionality was at issue.  On February 1, 1790, the first session of the Supreme Court was held in New York City’s Royal Exchange Building.

Strange, but True:  Despite being the highest-ranking court in the United States’ legal system, the Supreme Court did not have its own building until 1935, a full 146 years after it was formed!
