Storyboard Text

  • I just lost the election
  • I just won the election!
  • How can I make sure that Federalists will still have power over the government after I leave office?
  • I am definitely not delivering these commissions!
  • John Adams ran for a second term at the election of 1800 but was defeated by the Democratic Republican Thomas Jefferson.
  • I was appointed to be a judge by Adams and Madison will not deliver the commission! This is not fair!
  • Adams wanted to make sure that Federalists would still have power after he left. He appointed John Marshall as Supreme Court judge, hurried to pass the Judiciary Act of 1801 through the lame-duck Congress, and appointed Federalists to court positions.
  • The commission will not be delivered
  • Once Jefferson was inaugurated, he told Madison, his Secretary of State, not to deliver the commissions.
  • The End
  • Marbury, one of the commissioned, ordered Madison to deliver his commission and went to the Supreme Court.
  • In the end, Judge Marshall made the decision that the commission should not be delivered because the Judiciary Acts gave the Supreme Court unconstitutional power.
