Seventh Amendment

Rights in civil cases
In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.

What does this mean??
The seventh amendment guarantees trials in cases that could deprive life, liberty and property.
Why this picture?
This picture is joking about how people hate having to do jury duty even though we need juries.
