  • 2. Marbury vs. Madison
    An 1803 case in which the supreme court ruled that it had the power to abolish legislative acts by declaring them unconstitutional; this power came to be known as judicial review.
  • 3. How it Happened
    William Marbury was one of the midnight judges who had never received his official papers. James Madison was Jefferson's Secretary of state, whose duty it was to deliver the papers. The judiciary act of 1789 required the Supreme Court to order that the papers be delivered, and Marbury sued to enforce this provision. Chief Justice Marshall decided that this provision of the act was unconstitutional because the constitution did not empower the Supreme Court to issue such orders.
  • 4. Importance
    The case Marbury vs. Madison affirmed the principle of Judicial Review. This is the ability of the Supreme Court to declare an act on Congress unconstitutional.
