Resumen

ETCHEVERRY, Juan B.. HOW HAS THE SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES SOLVED ITS EXCESSIVE WORKLOAD PROBLEM?. Rev. chil. derecho [online]. 2016, vol.43, n.3, pp.987-1004. ISSN 0718-3437.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-34372016000300009.

The history of the appellate jurisdiction of the United States Supreme Court is, in part, related with the difficulties to decide the volume of cases it receives every year. The purpose of this paper is to show how the incorporation of certiorari solved the excessive workload problem of such court. To achieve this goal, it will be explained how the United States Supreme Court's jurisdiction evolved and how it currently works, which cases could be "potentially" admissible and which are "normally" denied, how this screening process works and how is the way that non-certworthy petitions are denied. This effort is made to show how the certiorari solution is related to what the constitutional practice of United States considers as the main function of its Supreme Court. This explanation could be useful in the context of debates about how to solve excessive workload problems of Courts of last resort that have the power of judicial review.

Palabras clave : Certiorari; discretionary jurisdiction; extraordinary writ; Supreme Court of the United States.
