  • I think that since it's my last night as president, I'll appoint some people to the Judiciary!
  • President John Adams
  • One Day Later...
  • James Madison
  • Mr.New-President sir, would you like me to deliver these here commissions?
  • President Thomas Jefferson
  • No! Do not dare deliver one more of those!
  • I never got my letter of commission to the Judicial court! This is wrong, Mr.Madison should be given a writ of mandamus! Also, because of the Judiciary act of 1789, I am aloud to bring this case straight to the high court.
  • Chief Justice John Marshall
  • Oh no!
  • As it turns out Mr. Marbury, The Judiciary Act of 1789 is unconstitutional, therefore, the opinion of the court rules in favor of Madison.
  • This Landmark Case, Marbury v Madison, is significant to American history because it was the first case to use whats called judicial review. Judicial review is when the Supreme Court uses it's power to decide the constitutionality of a legislative act.
