Federal judiciary of the United States

From wikilawschool.net. Wiki Law School does not provide legal advice. For educational purposes only.

To bring a case before a federal court in the United States, several conditions must be met:

  1. Injury-in-fact; has there been an actual harm?
  2. Causation of injury is based on the defendant's conduct
  3. Redressability means that there is a remedy for the injury or wrong; there is a relief

Article 3 standing is a Constitutional requirement. A general grievance of a party without a traceable harm is not a cognizable interest for a plaintiff.

Military courts[edit | edit source]

Military courts to try members of the military are authorized by the federal Congress. These types of courts are non-Article III federal courts.[1]
