Federal Court System


There are three different levels of the Federal Court System. Supreme court, District courts, and Courts of appeal. The highest court is the Supreme court. Each court has to enclose a minimum of district courts and they all are specialized courts in their jurisdiction. Every last one of the courts have the same structure but except New York. In New York the highest court is the Court of appeal instead of the Supreme court.


Each court is at a different level, this is because they all do different things. The Court of Appeal sends cases back to the lower courts so that it may be tired again. The District courts are federal courts were trials are held and lawsuits are formed. Last but not lest the highest ranking out of the courts the Supreme court. "The highest federal court in the US, consisting of nine justices and taking judicial precedence over all other courts in the nation."
