Seventh Amendment (1971)

This amendment assures a jury trial in civil cases involving more than $20. Its protections help to ensure the administration of justice. Read the text here: 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.
