He is known as the longest serving chief justice serving 34 years! Marbury v. Madison (1803) Facts:
During John Adams role as president he appointed 42 justices of the peace, one of whom was William Marbury.
This was done because of the Organic Act, a try by federalists to take control of the federal judiciary. By appointing Federalist judges.
The plan was to deliver the nominations (signed by Adams) before Jefferson became president, but that never happened.
Jefferson refused and told James Madison (Secretary of State) not to send them.
Marbury then wanted the Supreme Court to write writs of mandamus to force Madison to send those appointments. Issue: Can Supreme Court issue writs of mandamus to make Madison pass the appointments? Arguements:
Marbury has the right to ask to carry out a particular task (commission) {Marbury}
Marbury had a right to a legal remedy because law required it. {Marbury}
Supreme Court can't issue a writ like this since section 13 of the Judiciary Act of 1789 says its unconstituional and invalid. {Madison} Verdict: Unanimous 4-0
If Congress is issued a case in which laws passed by Congress conflict with the Constitution, then Supreme Court chooses to abide by which rule to be chosen. This decision can be changed by Congress. This case is important since it establishes the true power of the Supreme Court and its power of Judicial Review. How its able to disregard the constitution or a law. How it isn't influenced by any other federal branch. How it is equal in power to the legislative and executive branch. Work Cited: Thanks For Watching!
