Federal Court vs. State Court

It's important to know the difference between federal court and state court. While state court upholds laws written and enforced by the state, federal law upholds laws decided by Congress. These can even include cases concerning matters of the U.S. Constitution and laws that govern federal employees or national security.

For example, illegal narcotic distribution is considered a state crime and will be seen in state court, but transporting narcotics across state lines, or bringing it into a U.S. state from another country, is a matter to be addressed in federal court.
