If the Supreme Court says something in contradiction to the Constitution, I believe that would be incorrect on their part. In practice, it would take another Supreme Court decision to reverse their ruling. Or perhaps some other reason might be found that their ruling is invalid. For instance, if a criminal investigation were to find that a Supreme Court judge had been blackmailed or bribed to make a certain ruling, I believe that ruling could be legally dismissed. But maybe even in that case, it would require a new judge to replace the corrupt judge (who would presumably be removed), before it was overturned.

It is also, of course, possible for a Supreme Court judge, or the Constitution itself, to be in violation of moral law. Many “constitutions” violate human rights, but in my opinion those laws are themselves invalid.
