This storyboard was created with
Marbury vs. Madison storyboard.
This is Thomas Jefferson telling James Madison to destroy the papers for William Marbury to become the justice of peace.
Will do, sir.
This is Merbury petitioning the Supreme Court, because the President sealed the commision.
Yes, that is true. We will think it over.
He sealed the commission!
This is when the court decided that it would be unconstitutional to force Madison to hand them over.
After review, we have decided it would be unconstitutional to force him to hand them over.
This is the Judicial Review, which they first used for the Marbury vs. Madison case.
JUDICIAL REVIEWThe Supreme Court can claim a law passed by Congress unconstitutional.
In this picture, it is showing how the judicial review gives the Supreme Court power over the branches, which may be too much power because we are supposed to be equal.
Executive, is that constitutional?
Jefferson did not agree with the decision, for the Federalists still ruled which he found unconstitutional. However, he knew he needed to accept it.
The Federalists are still in control... it may be unconstitutional, but I have to accept it.
