Thomas Jefferson was elected for president
I will petition the Supreme Court for a writ of mandamus and have you show why Jefferson didn't receive his commissions
I am suing you because you did not deliver the commissions
John Marshall, the new Chief Justice, couldn't decide if they should accept or deny the case. If they accepted it, then the Jefferson administration would ignore it which would weaken the authority of the court. But, if they deny it then it would look like it was an act out of fear
He decided to accept the case
Marshall decided to let Madison and Jefferson leave the court without giving Marbury his commissions
The court did not declare another act unconstitutional until 1857
