dc.description.abstract This paper explores both the decision to abolish the New York Court for the Correction of Error and Trial of Impeachment (CCE) and the debate on how to reform the Supreme Court which resulted in the decision to still leave it subordinate to a newly created court of last resort, the Court of Appeals. Part II examines the Convention debates and actions regarding the abolition of the CCE and concludes that while many Democrats objected to the CCE on ideological grounds, it was more bi-partisan prosaic reasons that motivated the reformers to kill off the CCE. The critiques from all ideological spectrums boil down to this: the CCE did not and could not provide proper legal guidance to lower courts, litigants, and lawyers. Part III then looks at what problems the reformers faced in replacing the CCE and concludes with a surprise ending regarding the historical meaning of "supreme." That is, while the Supreme Court was not the Supreme Court, it was still supreme. en_US
