Discretion of Lower Courts al Affiliation) Activities that Permit the Lower Courts to Implement Decisions Legally, the lower court has the mandate or the authority to interpret decisions of the Higher Court: In this case, some important policies are usually made by the Higher or Appellate Courts, and such decisions are constitutionally interpreted by lower courts. The interpretation of decisions made by the higher court in the lower courts depend on various issues i. e. a judge’s personal perspective regarding the policy (iipdigital. usembassy. gov). Additionally the permission of lower courts to make decisions stems from the structure of the United States’ Judicial System.
The US Judiciary system is characterized by individualism, decentralization as well as independence, thus most judges tend to make decisions without fear of impeachment, provided they keep their electorate satisfied by their services (www. iwenger. com). On the other hand, the activities undertaken in the lower courts are usually permitted by the mode of communicating a policy by the Higher or Supreme Courts (www. iwenger. com). That is, when an appeal is made on a lower court, the higher court takes the initiative of informing the lower courts and other courts regarding the decisions through various modes of communication such as: Printed copies and the internet where the judges can acquire the information.
Remedies Applied by Public to Influence Decisions that are Yet to be Made by Lower CourtsOne of the remedies that the general public may utilize to facilitate decision making that a judge from a lower court has yet to implement, is to make an appeal for a decision to be made by a higher court. This remedy relies on the available legal structures that permit such decisions to either be made at the higher courts or the lowers courts, thus the general public has to take this into consideration.
Secondly, the general public may undertake advocacy campaigns, requesting for fair judgment and appropriate decision making processes in a manner that the general public’s needs are met. Advocacy campaigns are considered appropriate strategies that have been applied to advocate for rights and fairness. This can be applied in lower courts especially if the decisions to be made by the lower courts have an impact of the general public.
