What's The Point Of The Seventh Amendment?

By Brittany Antonacci June 15, 2020 0 comments

Hello Fellow Americans,

Today we’ll be continuing our in-depth series at a look into the constitution—primarily covering the Seventh Amendment. We’ll be giving a little background history as well as the purpose it holds today.

So, without further ado, let’s get started…

The Seventh Amendment states…

"In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law."

This amendment was put in to play because the founding fathers did not want to give all the power to government and decided civil cases should be not be solely decided by the judge, but a jury as well.

 

This means there should be…

A Trial By Jury

This means when someone is being tried within a civil case they are guaranteed to have a jury of at least six peers.

 

 Twenty Dollar Rule 

Back then a lawsuit had to be $20 or more to be considered and make it to court—now this has inflated to at least $75,000.

 

Basically, this amendment is to protect the rights of people who are being tried within civil court. Let us know if you have any additional questions on this amendment and we’ll be happy to answer them in the comments.

 

See You Later Patriot!!!
