Abbreviation: Supreme Court Of The United States.

Used in the press to discuss the U.S. Supreme Court's nominations and their legal decisions. Became popular in the press and media in 2004-5, especially with the Republican Party's efforts to nominate socially and legally conservative justices to the highest court in the judicial branch of the government.

Alludes to POTUS: President of the United States, which began seeing more frequent use in the 1980s and 1990s.
