Madison VS Marbury

Madison VS Marbury

Storyboard Text

  • I have appointed some federal judges. Jefferson will have to deal with the judges I chose and I still will be in control of the legislative branch even though I'm not in charge.
  • Adams can't chose who the new federal judges are because he is not president any longer. I will have to put a stop to this.
  • My name is William Marbury and I was supposed to be receiving commission paper because I heard Adams appointed me.
  • I am not aware that you were needed to be given any commission papers, but I can check and see if there is any.
  • I have the papers that Marbury wants,but I'm not giving them to him because Adams was appointing "midnight judges" before he left office. "Midnight judges" is a sneaky way the federalists try to control the judicial branch.
  • This is such a terrible situation, so I will not give Marbury his commission papers and will just not get back to him like I said I would.
  • I have not received my papers, I am going to be a plaintiff and request a writ of mandamus which will force Madison to give me my papers.
  • Why can't you give me what I asked for?
  • Since I have the jurisdiction I have decided that I can not force Madison to give you the papers because that would be going against the Constitution.
  • The Constitution interpreted that the Supreme court had the power to use Judicial review in this case.
