There is a garnette to have a jury and the trial to be held in state where crime was committed.
The purpose of federal district courts is to handle small cases, such as those between businesses and people suing other people. The purpose of federal district courts is to handle the small problems that occur that need settling.Another View: US District Courts handle ALL matters (large and small - civil and criminal) which involve federal law and which originate within their jurisdiction. They are the lowest level courts of original jurisdiction within the federal system.In serious criminal cases, district courts convene panels of citizens, which are known as grand juries (to hear evidence of a possible crime and to recommend whether the evidence is sufficient to file criminal charges, there can be as many as 16 to 23 people, also they are not used in civil cases).
Because not every court case requires a jury to reach a conclusion. Jury trials are usually reserved for criminal cases - and even then - not all cases need a jury !
Citizens are guaranteed priveleges and immunities.
FROM THE BILL OF RIGHTS Amendment 6: In all criminal prosecutions [trials], the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial [not biased] jury of the State and distract where in the crime shall have been committed.

The role of the U.S. Supreme Court is to ensure that the lower federal courts (and the state level courts) have correctly interpreted and applied constitutional and federal law. The Constitution gives the Supreme Court authority to rule state or federal laws unconstitutional. It can also order acquittals or new trials on the basis of violations of the U.S. Constitution or federal statutes. The Court also has the authority to investigate any criminal cases that have loopholes, unanswered questions, anything that wasn't clear in the first ruling and if someone feels their constitutional rights have been violated. It exercises final appellate jurisdiction in cases involving federal law and it has original jurisdiction in a limited number of matters. The Supreme Court hears only cases that present a substantial federal question. A case cannot be appealed to the Supreme Court until it has exhausted all other possible remedies, including lower court and any applicable state court appeals.
That you'll receive a "fair" trial.
All cases, criminal and civil, originating within that particular courts jurisdiction.
Due process is guaranteed to the accused in all criminal case. Various other rights are given to the accused in the Fifth and Sixth Amendments.
False. Although there are federal criminal laws, the vast majority of criminal laws are promulgated by the states.
A federal background check will show all criminal history.
No, not all by any means but remember, there are MANY-MANY more federal laws than those that relate to just criminal statutes.
The first level of Federal Courts is the US District Courts, which are courts of original jurisdiction and conduct both criminal and civil trials.The second level is the Appelate Courts which do NOT conduct trials but only hear appeals of trials and verdicts of the US district Courts.The third and highest level of the court system is the US Supreme Court which also does not conduct trials and which is the highest court in the land. It could loosely be termed the "super-appelate" court and whose decision is final in ALL rulings and/or cases having to with Constitutional interpretation.
No. There are a variety of federal courts that handle only specific types of law, such as federal tax court. Federal district court, the general trial courts in the federal system, have broad authority to handle trials, but only on matters of federal question or if the federal courts have jurisdiction for some other reason, such as diversity.
The right to trial by jury is guaranteed in all criminal cases and civil cases over a certain dollar amount.
Criminal - Civil - Tax - Treason - WHAT??? Be more specific. Federal Court hears ANY and ALL cases having to do with violations of federal law.
No. All federal circuit trial courts hear both jury and bench trials.
