If a lower court has exclusive jurisdiction, does this mean a case cannot ever make it to the Supreme Court?

If a lower court has exclusive jurisdiction, does this mean a case cannot ever make it to the Supreme Court? Topic: Case scenario cases
April 22, 2019 / By Ailse
Question: In a project for schools we have a scenario where a new court of appeals is created and it has original and exclusive jurisdiction over proceedings involving "contesting qualifications for getting a special license". My question is, because this court has "exclusive and original" jurisdiction can a case circumvent this court and go to the Supreme Court, since it is the highest court in the land?

Exclusive jurisdiction means that no other court at the same level can hear the case. Any HIGHER court can hear the case on appeal if they deem it meets the requirements of an appeal.

I believe they would have arrived at the same decision regardless of who was being stupidly attacked. We need to keep in mind that the Westboro Scum are not liked by anybody. I was surprised that the Court didn't apply "line of sight" restrictions during an actual funeral. In other words; they couldn't demonstrate within the sight of mourners during a funeral, or interment. I understand that assembly permits have been granted stipulating that the Westboro Scum remain out of sight of mourners. They could have been arrested violating permit restrictions. I'll go on record saying that it's only a matter of time before somebody does something really colorful to these filthy lice. It's just a matter of time, and circumstance.

Well...I would think that my answer belongs more upon comic relief, BUT - I have a Feeling that ANYTHING stamped at the bottom of its foot : "GOD", would be protected, even if it seemed offensive to the populace, and to causes, which may or would be questioning VALIDITY. Before the Devil became Satan, he was Lucifer, which means "full of lights"; an Archangel. So even that high-into-the-hierarchy-of angels-in Heaven, he ALSO went down into the inferno, stamped on the foot, as a dangerous subversive...That is what I think.

I think there's enough self-loathing in the judicial system that you might have an *easier* time arguing that case. Politically (which the Supreme Court is), the military is the most sacred of cows.

Exclusive and original jurisdiction means it must go through the lower court first. It can be appealed to the supreme court.

Ray Originally Answered: Should he go to the Supreme Court with this case?
It's not Joe's decision on whether the Supreme Court will take his case. But just so Joe knows, the SC isn't going to because they don't get involved in disputes over who should get a job or not. They're too tied up over trivial, bogus civil rights & liberties lawsuits filed by the liberals & ACLU. Also, the Chief can promote whomever he/she wants. The test score is only a small part of the selection process. His department might not be doing an investigation because there is nothing to investigate. What you might have is just a pissy employee who didn't get what he wanted. What Joe needs to do is stop his pissing & moaning, check to see if he has balls & then move on with life.

He's got about four courts to hit first and something tells me he'll get it figured out long before then.
