This week Craig Benzine is going to talk about the structure of the U.S. court system and how exactly it manages to keep things moving smoothly. We’’ll talk about trial courts, district courts, appeals courts, circuit courts, state supreme courts, and of course the one at the top - the U.S. Supreme Court. It’s all quite a bit to manage with jurisdictions and such, but it's important to remember that the vast majority of cases never even make it to court! Most are settled out of court, but also terms like mootness and ripeness are used to throw cases out altogether. Today, we're going to focus on how cases make it to the top, and next week we’ll talk about what happens when they get there.

U.S. District Court Judge Julie A. Robinson's journey to the federal bench in Topeka, KS, started when, at the age of five, she decided to become a lawyer. She credits her success to her father's faith in her and the fact that her mentors set high standards and demanded the best from her. Judge Robinson tells young people: "You never can dream big enough, sometimes. You can never really know all that is in store for you. All you can do is make sure that you are ready, and positioned, and able, and willing to accept all that comes your way."
Judges and court staff in Manhattan gathered to celebrate the 225th anniversary of the Southern District of New York.

U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton, District of Columbia, hasn’t let circumstances or other people define him. A talented football player, whose college injury took him out of the game, he discovered his intellectual abilities and rigorously applied them to getting a law degree. As an Assistant U.S. Attorney in Washington, D.C. his reputation for diligence and success in the courtroom brought him to the attention of the White House. He was appointed to judgeships by three Presidents and named to high-profile public service assignments by two Chief Justices of the United States. His advice for facing adversity: Don’t let outside forces define you or determine your future.

On 05/08/15 I was filming the outside of the US District Court Northern District of New York. Around the back side I came across this security guard. I barely said 2 words to this guy before he started going crazy. I have had cops in my face and I have had dozens of correction guards in my face, but this guy was scarier then all them put together. He had the crazy eyes going, throwing punches and swearing at me like he hated me. I do not know if the Court Officers are subcontracting the intimidation or what. This might be a new tactic to stop people from filming. You be the judge.
