There are no powers "listed" under state government authority. State governments have authority over everything not designated as authority of the federal government.

State courts have always had their own authority. In colonial times, each separate colony maintained its own government and tended to its own business legislatively and judicially. Thus, states already had judicial authority. There ws no federal government to superced state government in areas of federal concern as there is today. Before the US Constitution was created, the new United States operated under the Articles of Confederation. Under the Articles, states retained all of their original autonomy and authority especially with regard to judicial matters relating to their own legal matters. The US Constitution created a federal government that has only certain specific and limited powers that affected the states as a single country rather than as a group of individual state governments. The federal government's authority superseded state authority in those national areas but left state authority that did not conflict with the federal authority intact. Judicial matters that arose only under state law were left to the state courts to handle. In order to enforce federal law in a consistent manner from one state to another, the Constitution created federal judicial authority but it was only over federal matters such as issues that arose under federal law. These are referred to as "federal questions." Therefore, the Constitution simply allowed the states to retain their already existing judicial authority. This was accomplished in the Constitution in Article III, which created the federal judiciary and gave it authority over federal questions. The Tenth Amendment stated that all powers not given to the federal government were retained by the states. Since the Constitution did not take away state court authority over internal matters, state courts retained that authority.

The federal court system is more powerful than the state court system(s) for cases under federal or concurrent (shared) jurisdiction, as established by the US Constitution. The state court system has more power over issues involving municipal and state laws and the state constitution, provided they are not in conflict with the US Constitution. Congress had no independent authority to alter constitutional mandates, so the Judiciary Act of 1789 had no impact on this issue.
