Questions to Consider

Madison. False. When Jefferson became President, he refused to honor the last-minute appointments of President John Adams. As a result, William Marbury, one of those appointees, sued James Madison, the new Secretary of State, and asked the Supreme Court to order the delivery of his commission as a justice of the peace.
As stipulated by the Judiciary Act of 1789, there was one Chief Justice, John Jay, and five Associate Justices: James Wilson, William Cushing, John Blair, John Rutledge and James Iredell. Only Jay, Wilson, Cushing, and Blair were present at the Court’s first sitting.
William Marbury’s complaint was that the Jefferson administration withheld his commission as a judge. Marbury was appointed with other federalist judges by Adams after he lost the election but before Jefferson could be seated.
Marshall delivered his first landmark opinion two years after joining the court. John Adams had appointed a loyal Federalist, William Marbury (1761?-1835), to a judgeship at the very end of his term. Although approved by the Senate, Marbury never received his letter of appointment.
Incoming President Thomas Jefferson refused to honor the appointments. Marbury, one of the judges, sued to force James Madison (Secretary of State) to recognize the appointment. This makes A correct. The Supreme Court ruled that the law under which Marbury had been appointed was unconstitutional, making C correct.
The main group of supporters of the Judiciary Act were the Federalists, the party which argued for a strong federal government. Led by James Madison, the Federalists argued that Article III of the Constitution implored the Congress to create the lower court system to reinforce the document’s supremacy over state law.
Thus, Marbury never received his job. Jefferson and Madison objected to Marbury’s appointment and those of all the so-called “midnight judges” appointed by the previous president, John Adams, after Jefferson was elected but mere hours before he took office.
The Court had to decide whether Marbury was entitled to his job, and if so, whether the Judiciary Act of 1789 gave the Court the authority it needed to force the secretary of state to appoint Marbury to his position.
In the Court’s opinion, Marbury is entitled to his appointment. … According to the decision, the Supreme Court of the United States does not have the authority in this case to issue a writ of mandamus to force Madison to deliver the commission.
