Storyboard Text

  • After instating the Judiciary Act of 1800, Adams leaves office, but is unable to send the letter to William Marbury.
  • By law, Madison has to send this letter to Marbury, no matter what it says.
  • He decides not to, as it may harm his political stature.
  • Marbury is angered by this, and sues Madison.
  • The new chief justice, John Marshall, has to decide whether to side with Madison or Marbury.
  • In the end, Marshall decides to use the Judiciary Act of 1789 to pardon Madison's actions, although they were wrong. The act will not be enforced any more.
  • And everyone lived happily forever after.
