Storyboard Text

  • Seeing as I, president John Adams, am soon leaving office I will appoint you Mr. Marbury and your companion judges to maintain federalist power.
  • No Madison, you are forbidden from delivering those papers.
  • President Jefferson, should I deliver the appointment papers to Marbury and his men?
  • Madison and Jefferson are refusing to deliver our appointment Papers!  We're going to petition the court for a writ of mandamas!
  • Do it John Marshall is a federalist in the Supreme Court, he'll support you.
  • For now I´m going to have to discuss it with the other Court members, but I will get back to  you.
  • John Marshall we would like the Supreme court to issue a writ of mandamas so we can take our papers from Madison.
  • I say we give them the writ of madamas!
  • What are we going to do Marshall? It is our job to make sure justice is taken in the right direction.
  • No, the Constitution states that they must first visit a lower court.  The Judiciary Acts of 1789 goes against the constitution!
  • The End
  • President Jefferson, it appears that the Judiciary Act of 1789 is unconstitutional.  No one has the power to decide what the constitution means, but the Judicial Branch should.
  • Very well, but Marbury this also means that you will not be receiving your appointment papers.
