Storyboard Text

  • John Adams made many federalist appointments for justice of peace
  • One of those men was William Marbury
  • Jefferson refused to see Marbury, so Madison did not deliver the notice. This broke the Judiciary Act of 1789.
  • With Marbury very angry he decided to sue Madison even though Jefferson refused the appointment not Madison.
  • The Supreme Court took the case and the chief Justice wrote that the Judiciary act of 1798, which forced all commissions to be delivered, unconstitutional.
  • The court ruled the Judiciary Act of 1789 illegal and not to be followed. The case was dismissed and Marbury went home empty handed.
