James Madison’s Original Seventh Amendment


By: J.J. Jackson

James Madison’s Proposal for the Seventh Amendment:

“But no appeal to such court shall be allowed where the value in controversy shall not amount to — dollars: nor shall any fact triable by jury, according to the course of common law, be otherwise re-examinable than may consist with the principles of common law.” (James Madison’s proposal for a Bill of Rights)
