Welcome to Supreme Podcast, and the summary of the decision of the Supreme Court in Zivotofsky v. Kerry.
This is a Separation of Powers case involving a dispute between the President and Congress over the recognition of a foreign country, in this case the power of the President to determine which foreign government, if any, has territorial sovereignty over the City of Jerusalem. By a vote of 6-3 the Supreme Court upheld the President’s exclusive and conclusive authority to make that determination.
