The Supreme Court of the United States is the highest court in the Judicial Branch of the United States, and leads the federal judiciary. It consists of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and eight Associate Justices, who are nominated by the President of the United States and confirmed with the advice and consent Senate. Once appointed, Justices effectively have life tenure. The Supreme Court is sometimes informally referred to as the High Court, or by the acronym SCOTUS.
