A primer on the 7th Amendment « Protect Consumer Justice

Evan McPolin's insight:

This website has a whole  lot of information. It talks about almost everyone that had to do with the 7th Amendment.  Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, John Adams, Joeshp Story,amuel Bryan. The reason to enforcing this law, this helps the founding fathers  to protect the individual from the hold that the wealthy  have on society. The Constitution, Supreme Court Justice Joeshp Story thought the Six and Seventh Amendment was “a most important and valuable amendment; and places upon the high ground of constitutional right the inestimable privilege of a trial by jury in civil cases, a privilege scarcely inferior to that in criminal cases, which is conceded by all to be essential to political and civil liberty.”

This website gives the purpose of this amendment. It was involved in the bill of rights and the Decleration of Indpendence because the American colonist just enters an error when you dont have a trial. The British leader created two diffrent courts for colonist that didnt not allow jurries to decide the case.
