Amendment VII

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 reexamined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.
The 7th amendment gives citizens the right to a jury trial in civil court cases where the damages exceed $20.

Basically, the seventh amendment means, the right to trial by jury. If you need to rewrite the seventh amendment as it was written in the Constitution, then I can't help.
