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

5622 ratings | 750376 views
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.

It would be perfect if you spoke a little bit slower... this videos are very useful also for foreign students (like me) but it's not easy to follow your explanations if you speak so fast

Just my observation, but the material seems to be blithely paced more to impress people than to provide good, actionable teaching/learning

The courts cannot try to rush you by not giving you the information you request when you step to the window to retrieve information. The courts cannot place you on any state vexatious litigant list to try to suppress your first amendment rights. The oakland and hayward courts committed these criminal acts knowingly and willingly. I was at the Hearing Officers Office where I was supposed to be. I did not have to write anything in writing that I had been going there ongoing like the order stated. The courts should not have assumed they could steal from me and give my things to trespassers and criminals. That is why the law officials and the city attorney does not want me to go to the building where the order was signed. I could easily prove that I was there physically speaking with staff and asking where was the sanctions and fines against the Halliday's. I needed my money for being inconvenienced. No one was being threatened. Business was being taken care of according to the order. The city attorney should be removed from the building. Like in that other city the mayor was removed from the building for misconduct. It is two sides. Not one. From where I'm standing my side is the only side that can confirm I told all these people the deal and what was going on at my home. The law officials tried to encourage me to leave what I build for my family. A lot of them did not have anything for their own families but housing and section 8. Some of my written requests were being removed because that is how Oakland operates. They are comfortable committing criminal acts because the police feels like they only have to protect them. The crooks in those buildings protect the police. Together they place many lives in danger causing unnecessary deaths.

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?🤷🏼‍♂️

Guys, if he's speaking too fast for you, there's a speed feature. Use it. Or if you can't do that, find another channel- it's called CRASH COURSE for a reason. Thank you Craig for all the wonderful work!

"The 9th Circuit, which includes California and Oregon..." Yes, Oregon, the smaller and less influential state below Washington State. Somehow, Washington is in the 9th Circuit, is mega progressive, and fails to make the list on this video. Yeah, I'm from Washington. What of it?!

There is an error in this video- when discussing original jurisdiction in federal district courts, you say that the amount in controversy must exceed $70k, when the rule says that the amount in controversy must exceed $75k. (USC 28 chapter 85, Section 1332)

Watching this video to get an idea of what's going on when Mueller inevitably subpoena's Donald Trump which would probably go to the district courts and make its way to the Supreme Court

Ryan Owen (1 year ago)
so what is a court of claims, a circuit court, superior court vs supream, Ecclesiastical court, Admiralty court and a probate court? not to mention all the jurisdiction related to those courts. you got statutory law, admiralty law , common law, contract law, tort law, and the list goes on and on

Are most courts really operating under martial law? I know they done want common law. I heard maritime admiralty law and Martial law are the same. More clarity would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi there! I noticed a mistake at 2:26 when talking about diversity of citizenship. The dollar amount that qualifies the case to go to federal court is actually $75,000, not $70,000

"When the [Supreme] court hears a case it's called judicial review" WRONG!!  Judicial review is the power given to the judicial BRANCH to determine whether or not the actions of the other two government branches are constitutional or not.
