William Marbury was furious with John Adams, because he didn't get the comission that he was told he would get as justice of peace for district of Columbia.
I am sueing you, James Madison, because you shelved my comission.
Well it's not my problem that Adams never sent it out. Plus there are already to many federalist Judges.
Cheif justice marshall knew that with the execuative branch mainly controlled by Jeffersonisans, it would hardly spring forward to enforce a writ to deliever the comission to fellow federalist Marbury.
I'm sorry, but i will have to dismiss your suit.
But...but...I thought we were together. You know like we are both federalists, so you are the only one to help me in.
Marshall was the one who came away with a victory though. When explaining his ruling, he stated that part of the judicary act of 1789, which Murbary tried to base his appeal was unconstitutional.
The Court would not declare another act that Congress did unconstitutional until 1857. It has used that power sparingly.
