The '''state supreme court''' is, in most #REDIRECT [[state]]s, the highest court in the [[state court]] system. In [[New York]], however, the state supreme court is a [[trial court]], analogous to a state [[circuit court]] or [[superior court]] in other states, as was the former Supreme Bench of [[Baltimore]] City in [[Maryland]]. In New York and Maryland, the highest state court is called the Court of Appeals, and the intermediate [[appellate court]] goes by a different name. In [[Texas]]<ref>[ Texas Courts Online]</ref> and [[Oklahoma]]<ref>[ Oklahoma State Courts Network]</ref>, the state Supreme Court hears appeals only from civil matters; criminal appeals go to a separate court of last resort, called the Court of Criminal Appeals. The generic term "state supreme court" is commonly used to refer to any state court of last resort, regardless of what the state itself calls that court. A state supreme courtASSFLY JUST LOOVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSS Z's interpretation of the state [[constitution]] and other state [[law]]s, whether [[statute|statutory]] or [[common law|common]], is final<ref>[ Comparing Federal and State Court Systems]</ref> and is binding on all [[federal courts]], even the [[Supreme Court of the United States]]. However, a state supreme court's interpretation of the [[United States Constitution]] or other [[federal law]] may be reviewed by the U.S. Supreme Court. In that regard, state supreme courts are on the same level of [[precedent]] as the [[United States Court of Appeals|federal appellate courts]]. ==References==<references/> [[Category:JudicialMASSIVE COCK]]
