In Youakim v. Miller, 425 U.S. 231, 234 (1976), the U.S. Supreme Court emphasized its rule that:

"Ordinarily, this Court does not decide questions not raised or resolved in the lower court."

The effect of this rule is that when a petitioner fails to raise its issues in the lower court and/or the lower court fails to address it, then the U.S. Supreme Court will not grant certiorari to address the issue on appeal.
