  • Thank you so much Mr. Adams. I really appreciate it.
  • You are now the new Justice of Peace.
  • Later on...
  • You are not Justice of Peace anymore. John Adams isn't in office.
  • This is unacceptable! John Adams told me I was Justice of Peace.
  • This is pish posh. A judge will be the judge of that nonsense! John Marshall should hear me out.
  • Mr. Marbury, the opinion of the court ruled that the Judiciary Act of 1789 doesn't fit in with the rules of the Constitution. I'm sorry but you can't be the Justice of Peace. The job goes to whoever Thomas wants it to go to.
  • In conclusion, William Marbury did not receive the Justice of Peace job. Marbury attempted to get a citation of mandamus so he can keep the job. This case created Judicial Review. - “It is emphatically the province and duty of the Judicial Department to say what the law is…If two laws conflict with each other, the Courts must decide on the operation of each. So, if a law be in opposition to the Constitution… the Court must determine which of these conflicting rules governs the case. This is of the very essence of judicial duty.” Chief Justice Marshall, Marbury v. Madison, 1803
