7th amendment summary by akeem campbell

the 7th amendment is that if something was stolen or destroyed that cost 20 dollars or more you can the right of trial by jury can be preserved but now it is way more money than that because 20 dollars was worth alot of money in the 1700s. the second part is important because it clearly states that the power to convict or not to convict rest with a jury of your peers, not the government. It is yet another check on government power.
