What really happened during this case...?
“This is one of my last few days of presidency. I might as well add more justices of peace for the District of Columbia.”
“These commission papers by John Adams don’t seem like they were delivered. Secretary of state, James Madison, don’t deliver these commission papers”
Okay, sir. Will do.
“William Marbury, you aren’t the justice of peace since your commission papers were not delivered since i’m in office now”
”This is not fair. I was promised the job of justice of peace on the commission paper. I will see you in the supreme court, Jefferson”
“I will proceed to write a writ of mandamus, with this Supreme Justice John Marshall will understand and will take action.
“Jefferson is denying me my job as Justice of peace even though the commission Papers were signed”
“What seems to be the problem here?”
“Mr. Marbury, I cannot take action on this dispute because the constitution does not give me power to resolve this case, so Thomas Jefferson has the power to appoint whoever he wants”
