  • Marshall! Take these appointments out to everyone before the new Congress gets in!
  • 11:50 pm, March 3rd, 1801, Washington, DC
  • Yes, President Adams!
  • Judicial appointment for you, judicial appointment for you, judicial appointment for you, ah! Only 1 left! William Marbury...
  • 11:58 pm
  • I'm too late!
  • So, Mr. Marbury, why are you suing Secretary of State James Madison?
  • The Jefferson Administration won't be held accountable for promises made by the Adams Administration!
  • 2 Years Later...
  • He won't Recognize my appointment to justice of the peace!
  • These appointments were unconstitutional anyways, so it looks like Madison wins.
  • HA!
  • The Judicial Branch doesn't have that power!
  • It does now! The Supreme Court can now declare anything the other 2 branches does void if it's unconstitutional!
