Storyboard Text

  • Marbury v.
  • I sure hope Jefferson won't mind all these commissions I'm signing. (Adams)
  • Madison
  • But Mr. Adams wanted all these delivered. (Madison)
  • Hey! You can't deliver anymore of those commissions (Jefferson)
  • (1803)
  • Mr. President, I never got my commission to be a Justice of the Peace for the District of Columbia.(Marbury)
  • You can't do that! That's unconstitutional, I'm taking you to court! Chief Justice John Marshall will have to gibe me a Writ of Mandamus!
  • I ordered Madison withhold any commissions he hasn't delivered yet.
  • The Judiciary Act of 1789 allows me to take my case directly to the Supreme Court.
  • I do declare that on this day, February 24, 1803 the Judiciary Act of 1789 violates Article 3, Section 2 and is therefore unconstitutional. The opinion of the court rules against you Mr. Marbury, you lost this case. (Marshall)
  • Even if I didn't win my case I still helped develop the supreme Court's power of Judicial Review.
