Madison vs. Maybury
By kroro1, Updated
For social studies.
It is 1801. Jefferson has been elected for president, and Adams is making last minute changes to the Supreme Court.
Send these 16 gentlemen their appointment papers to fill the open judgeships made by the Judiciary Act of 1801. Go at once before my term ends.
I am filling a lawsuit against you for not delivering my papers of appointment. By the Judiciary Act I atm supposed to be a judge and I am allowed to take this to the supreme court.
Hooray! We're judges
WHat about me! I, William Marbury, demand to have my judgeship
Now that I , Jefferson, have taken office. Secratary Madison, don't give the remaining judges their papers of appointment.
Actually, thats unconstitunal. You lose. This will set a precednet for the judicial branch's power over the federal government, helping to establish judicial review.
