I think you forgot something:




 The Horny Heathen

  1. Sophia Grace says:

    I was just thinking the same damn thing.

  2. Christ says:


    Article VII states that:

    “In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, […]”

    Do we take this at face value, or is it accountable with inflation? Twenty dollars in the early 1800’s was probably worth a /substantial/ bit more than it currently is. How to interpret?

    • Mel says:

      Haha you’re making me wish I was a constitutional scholar right now. My guess is that it does adjust with inflation or maybe there’s another amendment or case where it was further defined and interpreted. Seems like a big oversight otherwise.
      What is the value cutoff for small claims court?
