The process of selecting and appointing justices to the Supreme Court of the United States has in recent decades become highly contentious.

        The Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court prefer physical letters over email in their correspondence. It's possible for an average person to send a letter to any Supreme Court Justice by writing and addressing it to an individual Justice at the Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C. The term "opinions," as used here, refers to several types of writing by the Justices. The most well known are the opinions of the Court announced in cases in which the Court has heard oral argument. Each sets out the Court’s judgment and its reasoning.
