Storyboard Text

  • Gibbons v. Ogden (1824 )
  • For some reason, I can't sail in New York waters even though I have a federal license.
  • Gibbons will never be able to sail in my waters.
  • State law gives Ogden a monopoly in state waters.
  • So that is why I cannot sail my steamboat here.
  • Furthermore, this has been upheld in state courts.
  • You are a knowledgeable lawyer. I am going to challenge this federally.
  • 2 years later...
  • They cited the Supremacy Clause and Commerce Clause as constitutional grounds to do this.
  • Now my business is saved because Justice Marshall and the Court ruled in my favor.
  • Oh no, my business is ruined because now everybody with a federal license can sail in state waters. The court even had a unanimous decision.
