Structure of the Court System: Crash Course Government and Politics #19

This week Craig Benzine is going to talk about the structure of the U.S. court system and how exactly it manages to keep things moving smoothly. We’’ll talk about trial courts, district courts, appeals courts, circuit courts, state supreme courts, and of course the one at the top - the U.S. Supreme Court. It’s all quite a bit to manage with jurisdictions and such, but it's important to remember that the vast majority of cases never even make it to court! Most are settled out of court, but also terms like mootness and ripeness are used to throw cases out altogether. Today, we're going to focus on how cases make it to the top, and next week we’ll talk about what happens when they get there.

Charlie B: If federal law and state law work side by side or federal courts deal with cases in relation to the USA specifically why do individual states get sued by individuals? when the government on a hole is the UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT? Therefore THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is enforcing immigration laws?? but still immigration violations are dealt with in state courts? You said it’s about jurisdiction? I would assume the federal court has more jurisdiction than individual states if federal crimes are more severe?🤦🏼‍♂️help?🤷🏼‍♂️
