The Seventh Amendment
The Founders believed that trial by jury was imperative to maintaining a free society. The Seventh Amendment says that certain federal, civil cases will be tried by a jury. Many states have extended this right with their own state constitutions and laws.

The text of this amendment reads, “In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise reexamined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.”
