I will appoint a lot of federal judges to the districts of Columbia's courts.
Now that Adams is no longer president, I wont have to send those letters out. Madison, I order you not to deliver the commissions.
I want to be a judge like Adams promised. I want you to order Madison to show why I can't become judge.
John Marshal you have to right to receive his commission. You also have the right to remedy. But, the supreme court doesn't have the power to make Madison hand you his commission
Well what about the Judiciary Act of 1789?
According to section 13, that violates the Constitution.
The supreme court defined its emerging role for the young nation, the court staked out its claim as a branch equal to and independent of congress and the executive branch. All because someone's paper work was not delivered. :)
