Storyboard Text

  • James Madison, Secretary of State
  • Characters
  • Thomas Jefferson, new president
  • John Adams, old president
  • John Marshall, Chief of Justice
  • William Marbury, one of the Midnight Judges
  • Before Jefferson takes office, I am going to appoint the Midnight judges.
  • Now that I am the new president, I order you, my Secretary of State, not to deliver Adams' Midnight Judges' remaining papers of appointment.
  • That's not fair of Jefferson to not send the papers of appointment. I want my job!
  • I went to the Supreme Court to try to argue my job back because the Judiciary Act of 1789 says I can.
  • As Chief of Justice, I wrote the opinion of the Court. We think that Marbury has a right to the job, but the Judiciary act of 1789 was unconstitutional, so he will not get his job.
