Intro to the Judiciary

The Judicial Branch is one third of the Federal government. The federal government is defined and delegated its enumerated powers by the states through the Constitution, in Article III.

The Judiciary as a part of the federal government has no authority to expand the power of the federal government. The expansion of the federal government is authorized only through Article Five of the Constitution and requires the consent of ¾ of the states.
