Storyboard Text

  • Court of Chancery of New York, 1824
  • Aaron Ogden
  • Thomas Gibbons
  • A Business Proposition
  • Robert Livingston and Robert Fulton, or the Roberts
  • Thomas Gibbons
  • Power Given to the Roberts
  • Oh wow thanks
  • Here, have control of the waters of New York
  • Aaron Ogden files a complaint asking the court to restrain Thomas Gibbons from being able to operate on the waters of New York.
  • The Roberts Play Monoploy
  • Wow this monopoly is great
  • The court room
  • Yeah it sure is
  • The reason Ogden was so ticked off at Gibbons was because he joined business with Robert Livingston and Robert Fulton
  • Ogden Loses a Game of Monopoly
  • Gibbons, you win
  • Robert and Robert (yes it's funny they have the same first name) were granted exclusive navigation privileges of all the waters within the state of New York area
  • One for the Books
  • The Roberts wanted to, and basically did, start a monopoly and gain control of more waters. They wanted a national network of steamboat paths that they could control.
  • Ogden was just mad with the whole deal and he took the case to court. Though he got it to court the Marshall ruled against him and in favor of Gibbons. It was ruled this way because travel was considered commerce, and thus this monopoly of transport was not breaking any laws.
  • Thanks
  • The reason this was such a big case was because it meant that the power to regulate interstate commerce would also include the power to regulate navigation.
