Bill of Rights
What are your rights as a US citizen?
Seventh Amendment
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 reexamined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.

What does this mean?

You also have the right to a jury when it is a civil case (a law case between two people rather than between you and the government).

This means that in addition to having a judge hear your case you also can have a jury that presides in your case.

Iíve noticed that Amendment 7 is the least popular amendment to talk about with 8th graders.

However, this is an important right because it guarantees that a jury of 12 citizens will help make a decision in a lawsuit that involves more than $20... that basically means anytime someone goes to court to sue another person
