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.

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