Martin v. Hunter's Lessee: Supreme Court Rules It Has Jurisdiction Over State Cases

Decided: Martin v. Hunter's Lessee - The U.S. Supreme Court rules unanimously that it has jurisdiction to review state court decisions, at least when federal law is at issue.

If the Supreme Court cannot take appeals form state courts in disputes about federal law, then the state courts would necessarily be superior to federal courts and, what's more, federal law would not be uniform across all the states.
