As the court of last resort, The Supreme Court in no way must comply with the decisions of the lower courts, or obviously any superior court. The result of which enables a level of discretion not apparent in the other branches of government, nor in the lower judiciary [Songer, 1990], [Benesh, 2002]. In fact, non-compliant behavior among the lower courts is rare. Even in the case of non-adherence to precedent by lower court judges, the Supreme Court often affirms the judgement as to reinforce its position at the apex of the judiciary [Reddick and Benesh, 2000]
