Federal courts are courts of limited jurisdiction. Generally, two types of cases can be heard in federal court: cases involving a federal question and cases involving diversity of citizenship of the parties.

Under 28 U.S.C. § 1331, a case involving the United States Constitution or federal laws or treaties is a federal question case.

Under 28 U.S.C. § 1332, a case in which a citizen of one state sues a citizen of another state and the amount of damages is more than $75,000 is a diversity of citizenship case.
