Question of the Week #28 – 2014

Question of the Week #28 – 2014

What is the Seventh Amendment of the US Constitution?

My two cents (but please share yours):

The Bill of Rights, also known as Amendments 1-10, were ratified on December 15, 1791. How much would the twenty dollars mentioned below be worth in today’s dollars?

Amendment VII

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 re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.”
