  • Marbury's commission expired after John Adams presidency ended.
  • The question before the court in Marbury vs.Madison was, "Can Congress expand the original jurisdiction of the Supreme Court?".
  • DESCISION
  • The Supreme Court had to rule in favor of the defendant, James Madison, because according to the Judiciary Act of 1789, Marbury bringing that case to the court was unconstitutional, since his requirement exceeded the power of the supreme court.
  • The petitioner, William Marbury, argued that he had the right to receive his commission, and that it was illegal for James Madison to withhold it from him. He quarreled that the completion of an appointment means that the commission is equally valid, even if it was delivered after the term of the president who appointed it. 
  • The defendant, James Madison, argued that the appointment of Marbury to Justice of Peace was invalid, because the commission was'nt delivered before John Adams presidency ended. 
  • The court ruled in favor of James Madison.
