Storyboard Text

  • 1803
  • Thomas Jefferson
  • John Adams
  • James Madison
  • William Marbury
  • John Marshall
  • Thank you, Mr. Adams!
  • You are now Justice of Peace, Marbury!
  • I'm in office now. So, you can't be Justice of Peace.
  • WHAT?!
  • This is SO not fair. Hmm, maybe if I take this the the Supreme Court John Marshall will give me a Writ of Mandamus...
  • I'm sorry, but the job belongs to whoever Jefferson wants. The opinion of court ruled that the Judiciary Act of 1789 is unconstitutional.
  • Aw..
  • The impact of this historical case is that it established Judicial Review. Judicial Review is the Supreme Court's power to declare a law unconstitutional. Therefore, William Marbury never became Justice of Peace because the Judiciary Act of 1789 was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court.
