Marbury vs Madison

Since Marbury was appointed, his appointment carried the power of law and the law passed to block him getting into office was unconstitutional (Judiciary Act of 1802)

Cheif Justice

John Marshall

Year Decided

1803

Established the precedent of Judicial Review

Revolved around court appointments in 1801 in which Jefferson's administration made it so one of Madison's Appointees could not become a justice

Majority Opinion

No dissenting Opinion

This established the doctrine of judicial review which gave the courts much more power than was granted to them in the Constitution
