The part about the court case no more costing than $20 was only approved by the U.S. Constitution. The Supreme Court had no idea about this being added.
2.) It was voted by 9 out of 12 states before it was made on December 15, 1791
3.) Judges cannot state their own personal opinions that effect the rights of a trial. (They may only state whether or not the evidence was helpful.)

"In suits of 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."
