    No. The Attorney General is the head of the Department of Justice, which is a department of the Executive.

    The Supreme Court is the highest court in the land, on which 9 Justices serve. It comprises the top of the Judicial Branch of the US Government.

    The Attorney General is technically the lawyer for the United States Government, and customarily occasionally argues on behalf of the US Government in front of the Supreme Court, though most of the time the arguments in front of the Supreme Court are made by the Solicitor General .

    No, the Attorney General is head of the Department of Justice, part of the executive branch of the government. The Supreme Court is the judicial branch.

    No. The attorney general protects the government and enforces law. Supreme Court interprets the law and sets precedents.

    No, but the person who holds the title Solicitor General is sometimes referred to -- tongue-in-cheek -- as the "10th Justice," because the SG appears in the Court far more often than any other lawyer in the country.
