A court's purpose is to settle disputes.
The Constitution establishes the U.S. Supreme Court
and gives Congress the power
to create any lower courts it deems necessary.
Congress has established the U.S. District Courts,
Appeals Courts, and certain specialty courts.
State and local courts are controlled by state laws.
