Congress is my largest asset in winning this court marshal. Appealing to their decision for Court of Errors , I'm sure I can win this court marshal. I am the plaintiff in the court.
My job is to keep Gibbons away from Congress so as not to let him feed sweet lies into their ears. I need to be as cunning and crafty has he is in oder to win Congress over. I am the defendant in the court.
Gibbons: "We can't both oversee New York trade Ogden!
Ogden: "Your Honor, I deserve to have this license as much as Gibbons."
Gibbons has a much better hold on the Congressmen than Ogden...
Hello! I am Gibbons. I want to start a system where ships travel the New York water paths and regulates trading, but I have to win the contest over Ogden. Both me and Ogden need licenses from Congress in order to start this system. Who will receive the license first?
Who get's the license?!
I deserve that license!!
Law states congress can't be above state law
Good day sir! I am Ogden. I aspire to establish an operation of monitoring the trade in New York. I must appeal to the New York Court of Chancery as Gibbons did, but with greater allure.
Gibbon's gets the license for the steamboats
Gibbons appealed the New York Court of Chancery decision to the New York Court of Errors. The Court of Errors affirmed and Gibbons appealed to the United States Supreme Court.
other person sad because of the judgment
judge explaining why ogden can't have the license
