The Supreme Court of the United States of America is the highest court in the United States. It has ultimate jurisdiction over all federal courts and over state court cases involving issues of federal law, and original jurisdiction over a small range of cases. The Court, which meets in the United States Supreme Court Building in Washington, D.C., consists of a chief justice and eight associate justices who are nominated by the President and confirmed by the United States Senate.
The Supreme Court was organized on February 2, 1790

The official logo of the HRC, adopted in 1995, consists of a yellow equals sign imposed onto a blue background. The logo was created in 1995 by design firm Stone Yamashita, who attracted then-Executive Director Elizabeth Birch to its bold design. A temporary, ongoing logo of the HRC trademark equal sign is a red revision of the official logo. The Campaign changed the profile picture on its Facebook page around 1 PM EDT on Monday, March 25, 2013 to the current red logo. The change is a social media effort by the campaign to show support for marriage equality in light of hearings in the Supreme Court (United States v. Windsor and Hollingsworth v. Perry) on the constitutionality of same-sex marriage. According to HRC spokesman Charlie Joughin, the red "is a symbol for love, and that’s what marriage is all about."

"Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law –- (applause) -- for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well."
