The Constitution of the United States: Amendment 7--Trial by Jury in Civil Cases

Ratified 12/15/1791
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.

How might the seventh amendment be at least partially responsible for the overburdened U.S. judicial system?
