Samuel Chase was a representative from Maryland and a signatory on the Declaration of Independence.  Chase had a law practice in Annapolis and represented Maryland in the Continental Congress in 1774.  He was appointed chief justice of the criminal court for the district of Baltimore in 1788, and eight years later appointed as an associate justice on the Supreme Court of the United States.  Chase was impeached by the House of Representatives on eight articles centering on his alleged political bias, but was acquitted by the Senate, and served on the court until he died in 1811.

The Supreme Court of the United States is the highest federal court of the United States, established in 1788 pursuant to Article Three of the U.S. Constitution.  It has the ultimate jurisdiction over all federal and state court cases involving federal laws.  The Court normally consists of the Chief Justice and eight associate justices, who are nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate.  Justices have lifetime tenure unless they resign, retire or are removed after impeachment.  The Supreme Court is one of the three branches of the federal government which also includes the Executive (President) and Legislative (Senate and House of Representatives).
