For the US Supreme Court, the three main courts is the Supreme Court, the Court of Appeals/Circuit courts, and the District Courts. The lowest of the Federal courts is the District courts. There are 94 District courts in the US spread throughout the 50 states. District courts are original jurisdiction, which means they are the first court to see the case. 95% of the cases in the District courts are Criminal or Civil courts. Cases go to these courts when the accused group or person has violated a federal crime, or has committed a crime in multiple states, which means the state courts wouldn't be allowed to see the case. For the other 5% of the cases, there are special courts, for cases dealing with Tax, military, bankruptcy or property claims questions. The middle Federal courts are the Appeal/Circuit courts, which have appellate jurisdiction. This means that they only see cases where a person from another case found the original court decision unfair, and they want to appeal to another court. There are 12 federal Appeal/Circuit courts in the US. Of course, there is the highest court in the US, the Supreme Court. There is only 1 Supreme court, with 9 judges, all of which where appointed by the President. The Supreme Court has can have Original or Appellate jurisdiction. As stated in article 3 of the constitution the Supreme court has original jurisdiction "In all cases affecting ambassadors, or other public ministers and consuls." Otherwise the Supreme Court tends to have appellate jurisdiction. The Supreme Court can pick which cases they want to see, and in order for them to see a case, at least four of the Justices must vote to see it. Out of the 8,000 appeals the Supreme Court gets a year, they only see about 100 cases. And any decisions the Supreme Court makes about a case is final, their decisions cannot be appealed, unless a constitutional amendment is made.

The Supreme Court decides to hear a case based on three major factors:Whether the appeal came from the US Court of Appeals Circuit Courts or state supreme court and is in conflict with the decisions of other Circuits (circuit split);Whether the case involves an important constitutional issue that has not yet been resolved; andWhether the lower court's decisions may be wrong in light of the Supreme Court's opinions.The justices then vote to determine whether they want to review the case. If four justices (the "rule of four") agree the case is worthy of the Court's time, they will grant certiorari.

There are a total of 94 federal Districts, but only 90 of them are in the 50 states and District of Columbia. The other four are in Puerto Rico, Guam, the Virgin Islands, and the Northern Mariana Islands.There are actually 94 US District Courts (90 in the 50 states and District of Columbia, and 4 in US Territories, such as Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Northern Mariana Islands) and 13 US Court of Appeals Circuit Courts inferior to the Supreme Court of the United States.Congress determines the number of District Courts.There are 94 US District Courts in the federal judicial system. Although the US Supreme Court is head of the Judicial branch of government, it is not quite accurate to refer to the District Courts as "belonging" to the Supreme Court. The 94 US District Courts are "below" the Supreme Court, but they are also immediately below twelve of the thirteen US Courts of Appeals Circuit Courts.The thirteenth Circuit Court, the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, doesn't have territorial jurisdiction over the District Courts, but has nationwide, special jurisdiction over certain types of cases, such as monetary claims against the United States.

The only state courts eligible to have cases reviewed by the US Supreme Court are the state supreme courts or court of appeals immediately under the state supreme court (if that court declines review), because a case must exhaust all appellate options before any party can petition the US Supreme Court for a writ of certiorari. State supreme courts can avoid having their cases reviewed by never accepting a case that involves questions of federal or constitutional law. Barring that, they could pay careful attention to case law and not make a ruling in conflict with an established precedent. Barring that, they can only hope whoever loses the state supreme court appeal doesn't petition the US Supreme Court for a writ of certiorari or, if they do, hope that the case isn't sufficiently compelling that it attracts four of the Justices' interest.
