Description: The U.S. federal court system features 13 appellate courts, 12 U.S. Courts of Appeals and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. In this informative volume, readers will learn about the Courts of Appeals, where judges review District Court rulings and procedures. In these courts, lawyers debate whether or not a ruling should be overturned. Was the correct law applied? Was the trial conducted fairly? Most importantly, was the decision constitutional? This book uses real-life examples of some of the most famous cases in history to educate readers about what an appeal is and why it is an important part of the justice system.
