Don't let these news fool you !! They know now that almost the half of the humans on earth are against Monsanto and its plan to enslave them, now they want they want the public calming down so they can sneak pass them as they always do.

WOW YAY!
for once the supreme court does the right thing.

Otherwise before long Monsanto would make GMO people and own the patent on the DNA and own the product workforce they would grow to replace regular people. Genetic slavery is the inevitable end result of Monsanto if left unchecked.

Re: SUPREME COURT Ruling on GENES Being Patentable, Says Human Genes Aren't Patentable!!!!
The cause of the case:

Supreme Court to Rule on Patentability of Human Genes

[link to www.genomicslawreport.com]

The Supreme Court today granted a writ of certiorari (meaning they agreed to hear the appeal) in Assoc. for Molecular Pathology v. Myriad Genetics, Inc., et al., the famous case centered on patents covering two human genes: BRCA1 and BRCA2.

Of note is that the Court limited its grant of the appeal to the first of the three questions posed by the petitioners/plaintiffs: “Are human genes patentable?”

What that means is that the Court has declined to take up other questions presented about method claims and about standing to sue. As a result, the Federal Circuit’s prior holding that the bulk of Myriad’s challenged diagnostic method patents are invalid is now a final decision. This comes as no surprise given the Supreme Court’s recent and decisive opinion tightening the criteria for medical method patents in Prometheus v. Mayo, handed down earlier this year.

Instead, the Court will address – and will only address – the central point of disagreement in the 2-1 decision of the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit of August 16, 2012. In that ruling, Judges Lourie and Moore were in the majority, upholding their previous 2011 ruling that isolated DNA molecules are patentable subject matter. Judge Bryson dissented with that part of the ruling, and the Solicitor General has twice (here and here) filed briefs in the case that track closely to Judge Bryson’s dissent.

By granting the appeal, the Supreme Court is now poised to finally address the key point of contention in a series of lengthy and contradictory rulings that began in 2010 with a ruling from a US Federal District Court and continued through the the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (which hears appeals of all US patent cases). It is expected that the Supreme Court will hand down its ruling in Myriad by June 2013.

Just a quick search on this question...

Answer
There is no higher court than the Supreme Court, therefore no there is no appellate court to go to.

Answer
Indeed.

However, because we have a system of checks and balances, you aren't entirely without recourse, at least in theory. For example, if your case hinged on a particular interpretation of federal law, and the Supreme Court interpreted the law in such a way that it caused you to lose the case, you can lobby Congress to change the law (good luck).

If you were asserting a constitutional right, and the court found that your constitutional rights had not been violated by a particular government action, you can try to lobby Congress, and the legislatures of at least 3/4 of the states to amend the constitution (fat chance).


Answer
There is NO appeal from a decision of the US Supreme Court, their word is the final word on the interpretation and meaning of the law.


Answer
While all of the above answers are correct, Supreme Court rules allow 25 days after the opinion is released during which either party may request a rehearing (from the Supreme Court) on the decision. Rehearings are seldom granted without a compelling reason.
