There is no tag excerpt or wiki for , and as I see it, it can either be:

  • The Supreme Court of the United States.
  • The highest court in any given country (i.e. any of these).

Looking through the questions, it seems there are 11 questions without the united-states tag. A quick glance reveals that most – if not all – are about the SCOTUS anyway.

At the very least, it would be good to disambiguate this in the tag excerpt.

It might also be a good idea to rename this tag to make the intent clearer from just the name. is a bit long, and is somewhat obscure, but perhaps we could rename it to or something similar?

Do we still want to add a country-agnostic supreme-court tag? An example of a question which could be tagged with a country-agnostic tag would be this one, as it's about the Raad van State, which is the supreme court in the Netherlands. Would this add value?

All United States questions should be tagged , so my preferred solution would be to just add the missing tag to nine of the questions. I did two today. So as not to dump nine questions to the top of the front page at once, I plan to wait to do the others.

Note that two of the questions refer to the Supreme Court of Canada and are properly tagged .

If the US questions are tagged properly, then I don't see that we need separate tags for each country. And even if we added , we still should for those who want to mask out the many US questions.
