Marybury v. Madison Story Board-Holly Pantalone
This storyboard does not have a description.
The District of Columbia's commissions were approved by the Senate, signed by the president, and affixed with the official seal of the government.
After President Jefferson assumed office March 5, 1801 he ordered James Madison to not deliver the commissions. The commissions were not delivered.
William Marbury petitioned the Supreme Court for a writ of mandamus.
The Chief Justice ruled that the Court could not grant the writ because Section 13 of the Judiciary Act of 1789.
Marbury was denied his commission-which presumably pleased Jefferson.
The Court began its ascent as an equal branch of government- equal in power to the Congress and the president.
