In this weeks coming parsha, we see an interesting (and well known) difference when comparing Yitro's advice to Moshe.<br>Yitro: All big things come before Moshe, all small things are handled by the regular judges.<br>
Moshe's Implementation: All hard things come before Moshe, all simple things are handled by the judges.<br><br>It just occured to me this week that the US court system is almost exactly Yitro's advice. The more high-profile (and big) a court case is, the higher it gets pushed in the courts until it could reach the supreme court. Contrast this with the Halachik process, where the average person asks their rabbi who, if he doesn't know the answer ask his rav etc.
