CHKPT: RESPONSIBILITIES OF COURTS 2There are three main court levels but many for each. Each court system has their own duties tocarry out and if they are not fulfilled or fulfilled correctly the whole system may be a little off. That iswhy it is important for the right people to carry on the correct duties.The first court level is U.S District Court; they have many important and mandatoryresponsibilities they must always be ready for. The district court has responsible for all criminal courtcases, traffic violations, DNR, and animal control. Felonies however go to circuit court after beingarrainged and have their preliminary hearing. Trials are either jury trials or non jury trials but alwaysheard by a judge. Cases are usually solved by being dismisses, making a plea, or a simple trial.The Court of Appeals has many responsibilities also. The Appellation courts are supposed torender and review most decisions from cases that had been appealed to them from lower circuits of thecourt systems. There is usually no jury trials, they just review cases and render some sort of verdicteither taking them on or by sending the case back to the lower courts for a re-trial.State Supreme Courts hear all of the cases that have not been appealed through the circuitcourts. Cases that make it to the supreme courts have reached their highest level; at that point theSupreme Courts decision is binding and final.The cases can be moved into Federal Courts out of state courts only if that particular case hassomething to do with conflict against a federal law. The federal courts dont prosecute state laws, onlyfederal laws. They take appeals from the state court level, even then they still may not have jurisdictionto decide if a law was violated or not. Mostly, federal courts deal with issues of constitutionality orissues covering civil rights.
