Supreme court. jim, who is a bit eccentric, says that he is fed up with the way a certain employer in his town treats employees and that he is going to sue that employer in an effort to improve matters. jim also says that he is going to start his case at the appellate court level, skipping over all those "lesser" judges. jim says that those justices will surely hear him out and that he will also seek a jury. although he is not a lawyer, jim believes that the offenses of the employer are so severe that the justices will appreciate his attempt to make things better for the employees involved. will jim get a jury at the appellate court level?
No, because he lacks standing
As a private citizen who is not a lawyer, Jim cannot represent his fellow employees as that would require being a lawyer. Were he representing himself alone, he would have been allowed to represent himself.
As a non-lawyer however, he cannot represent multiple people as plaintiff. He therefore has no legal standing to do so.
The correct answer is D) No, the district court will take an initial hearing of Jim's case nor decide whether he has a claim or not.
The judicial process is the procedure for resolving disputes through the court system.
The federal court system has three main levels: district courts (the trial court), circuit courts which are the first level of appeal, and the Supreme Court of the United States, the final level of appeal in the federal system. There are 94 district courts, 13 circuit courts, and one Supreme Court throughout the country.
The United States district courts are the general trial courts of the United States federal judiciary. Both civil and criminal cases are filed in the district court, which is a court of law, equity, and admiralty.
The nature of the case above is of a Criminal Nature.
A criminal case is a type of court proceeding in which the defendant is tried for conduct considered illegal by the legislature or government. For individuals it can be things such as murder, manslaughter, crimes of damage against a person (psychological, physical, torture etc) sexual crimes, drug offences, stealing etc
Yes, so long as a state trial court judge approves and certifies the case for the appellate court without holding a trial first.
If the trial court judges approves and if he has records and proofs for the case then he can straightly appeal to the appellate court without any lawyer.Anyone can file a case against another if there is any issue or problem and he has the evidences or proofs
