Today we will be learning about the Marbury vs Madison Supreme Court Decision
This is important for our history because it gave the Supreme Court Judical Review
This decision was important to our history because it gave the Supreme Court Judical Review
On February 24, 1803 Chief Justice Marshall was the first to declare an act of Congress Unconstitutional
Unfortunately, Madison didn’t know he was appointed and by the time he found out, Jefferson had already took office and appointed another justice in his place
All of this occurred because before President Jefferson took office, President Adams appointed a justice named William Madison
He wanted the Supreme Court to issue mandamus so he could regain his position
Madison believed he should have been given the justice position because Adams appointed him before he left office
Thus setting the precedent for Judical Review
Chief Justice Marshall didn’t commission the mandamus because the Constitution didn’t give that power to the court
Chief Justice Marshall denied the mandamus because the constitution didn’t give that power to the Court
