A court is a means of dispute resolution, judgment, or adjudication. A court's responsibilities include criminal, administrative, and civil matters. Types of courts include federal, state, district, superior, common, circuit, judicial, divorce, probate, appeals, traffic, family, and small claims. When a court hears a case, it tasks each side with providing evidence to support their claims. A judge and jury look at the evidence and supporting law to reach a decision regarding the case.
Courts are found everywhere from small towns to major cities. Each state and federal jurisdiction in the U.S. has its own courts. All of these lower courts are under the final jurisdiction of the Supreme Court. Federal courts are divided into trial courts and administrative courts, and state courts are divided into county courts and appellate courts in accordance with local laws.
