''Turner v. Bank of North America'', 4 U.S. 8 (1799), is a [[U.S. Supreme Court]] decision that includes the classic statement of the power of [[Congress]] to limit the jurisdiction of the [[federal]] courts:
 
  
:The notion has frequently been entertained, that the federal courts derive their judicial power immediately from the Constitution; but the political truth is, that the disposal of the judicial power (except in a few specified instances) belongs to Congress. If Congress has given the power to this Court, we possess it, not otherwise; and if Congress has not given the power to us, or to any other Court, it still remains at the legislative disposal.
