I am suing James Madison for withholding my commission to become a Chief Justice in Washington D.C.
John Adams' last minute appointments were an outrage of decency. We refuse to deliver the commission.
Section 13 the Judiciary Act of 1789 gives me the right to my commission.
The people should have the right to express their will in the law. We should not issue checs on those beliefs.
It is the role of the court to decide on the law. The law is not partial. We should look at the Constitution loosely.
Madison and Jefferson did act illegally, but if I order them to deliver the commission and they ignore it then it will reflect badly on the Judicial branch.
I rule that it was illegal for Madison and Jefferson to withhold the commission, but I cannot order them to deliver it. I also rule that section 13 of the Judiciary Act of 1789 is unconstitutional.
Thus the power of judicial review was given to the courts.
