Der Marshal of the United States Supreme Court betritt den Gerichtssaal und schlägt zwei Mal mit dem Hammer. Dann verkündet er
The Honorable, the Chief Justice and the Associate Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States. Oyez, Oyez, Oyez, all persons having business before the Honorable, the Supreme Court are admonished to draw near and give their attention, for the Court is now sitting. God save the United States and this Honorable Court!
