United States District Court for the District of New Jersey
The majority of federal cases are commenced in the U.S. District Courts. These are known as courts of “original jurisdiction,” thus in most matters they function as trial, rather than appellate, tribunals. Any case or cause of action based on federal law may be brought in a U. S. district court. Lawsuits in these courts are often between private parties, but they may also involve the U.S. government. Alleged violations of federal crimes are brought by the U.S. Department of Justice in these courts. District courts are sometimes favored by plaintiffs because they opportunity to have their cases tried before a jury.
