    Can a supreme court ruling be unconstitutional?

    If the supreme court decides on what is constitutional and what isn't in their rulings. Can their rulings be unconstitutional?

    I think so. I may be wrong but can't the supreme court take on old cases and reverse decisions if they believe that it was unconstitutionally ruled upon?

    I had considered that, but I wonder if that just means what is constitutional has changed.

    Its an interesting question either way.

    Taking into account them being able to reverse decisions I would have to agree.

    We all get things wrong. The Supreme Court is no different.

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24

    Brown v. Board of Education. It's a perfect example of determining that a prior Supreme Court ruling was unconsitutional.

    Definitely.

    One example: If a ruling occurs before an amendment is passed, and the amendment conflicts with the previous ruling, that ruling is rendered unconstitutional.
