I am Thomas Jefferson. As you may know, I indeed am a Democratic Republican. And I won the Election!
I am Aaron Burr. I, in fact, am also a democratic republican! But alas, I lost the election and became Vice President
John Adams appointed many judges in his final months as president and made his secretary of state the Chief Justice
Also, you're the Chief Justice now.
All of you are Judges now!
See you on the flip side
Jefferson came into office and stopped the whole thing. Many judges lost their opportunity. One of which, was William Marbury.
No! We need more TIME!
Nope! It's my time to shine! I'm going appoint my own judges!
What In Tarnation!
Marbury was livid and went to the Supremes to get a writ that would give him his job.
You listen here! I want my job! Do you here me! And I want it now! It was mine and now It's not and I don't like that and I'm running out of breath *breathes in*. Furthermore I want a writ that gives me my position as judge back. Please and Thank you!
Marshall had to tell him that because of the Judicial Review, he had to refuse because it was deemed Unconstitutional.
Listen, we can't do that! We don't have the jurisdiction. Congress is gonna decide that it is unconstitutional. Sorry.
This is the first case that used the Judicial Review, but not the last! That is actually the Judicial branches main job. It has been put into action during the gay marriage debate, Brown VS the Board of Education, and the Affordable Care Act. I have no doubt in my mind that it will be used in the future!
