There are two courts in the United States, which consists of the federal court and state court. The federal government oversees the federal court, and the state government runs the state court. The state court of law is termed as a court of general jurisdiction, whereas the federal court is termed as having limited jurisdiction.
The federal court handles federal tax crimes, drug trafficking, marketing of firearms, robbery of federally insured banks, disagreements between states, bankruptcy, and cases connected to treaties and laws of the country. Most of the noteworthy criminal trials take place in the federal courts. The majority of the so-called minor cases, such as personal injuries and family cases, are handled by the state courts.
