    The Constitution is the law of the land. The responsibility of the United States Supreme Court is to decide law based solely on the Constitution.

    Their job is to make sure that the law is within the bounds of being legal and that it doesn't violate the constitution. So a law preventing people from talking in the street would be unconstitutional because of the First Amendment. On other cases they make sure that the law is being applied fairly.

    it is their job to uphold the Constitution. They are supposed to use it as a basis for their decisions.
