No, it's not. Remember that many of the "Supreme Court"s of the various states were established LONG BEFORE the Supreme Court Of The United States.
Yeah, but THEY were sucking off the King of England.

It's a British usage referring to and adopted by the colonial/commonwealth high courts.

I'm criticizing the sources inaccurately adopting the British system... and any who follow the irrationality inherent in the usage as applied to the SCOTUS. Perhaps they consider Her Majesty's Supreme Court of the United Kingdom to be highER?

Just so you know, I wasn't casting aspersions on you or your abilities. I was just wondering, considering all the errors that occur.

No, they weren't ! Between 1776, when we declared our independence, and 1783, when Great Britain offically recognized our independence,(choose whichever date you like to recognize teh independence of the 13 original states), the "Supreme Court"s of teh various states were completely independent of the king.

You can have all the ice you want for free; in fact they'll even pay you to take some.

I was asking if they sold "Italian Ice" there. You DO know what "Italian Ice" is, don't you ?

Why ask a question if you refuse to accept the answer?

I've never heard of "Italian Ice"; I had to google it. Sounds like a SnoCone.
