In ASARCO Inc. v. Kadish, 490 U.S. 605 (1989), the U.S. Supreme Court restated the Rooker-Feldman doctrine that 28 U. S. C. § 1257 ordinarily bars direct review in the lower federal courts of a decision reached by the highest state court, because such authority is vested solely in the U.S. Supreme Court. See:
