The Judiciary Act of 1789 (2094 words)
Acting on its constitutional authority to establish inferior courts, the Congress instituted a three-tiered judiciary.
In response to those concerns, the act allowed state courts to exercise concurrent jurisdiction over many federal questions, it required federal courts to select juries according to the procedures used by the district’s state courts, and it guaranteed the right to trial in the district where the defendant lived.
One of the first acts of the new Congress was to establish a federal court system in the Judiciary Act of 1789.
