A certain person was convicted at the district level. The U.S. Court of Appeals overturned/vacated convictions.The state filed for a reconsideration which the U.S. Court of Appeals also denied. The State then took the case to the state supreme court. We now await the decision. the question is if the supreme court aka " court of last resort" upholds the appellate court ruling, can the state take the case anywhere else i.e. "federal" and if so, what would be the procedure and restrictions placed upon them?

I'm a bit confused how the case went from the federal court system to the state supreme court. If it was in U.S. Court of Appeals, the only next court of federal jurisdiction is the United States Supreme Court.
