Week 6 - Sociology of Law February 17 , 2016 th Marbury v Madison (February 24 , 1803)  Landmark case in the United States law that established the principle of Judicial review  The Issue o Does the Constitution give the Supreme Court power to invalidate the Actions of Other Branches of Government?  When a conflict of this nature occurs which one has precedence – The U.S. Constitution or the Act of Congress  Judicial Review o The doctrine under which legislative and executive actions are subject to review by the judiciary. A court with judicial review power may invalidate laws and decisions that are incompatible with a higher authority, such as the terms of a written constitution. Judicial reviewis one of the check and balances in the separation of powers: the power of the judiciary to supervise the legislative and executive branches when the latter exceed their authority o Appeals courts do NOT rule on facts of the case, ONLY the application of law  The Players o John Adams  2 president of US appointed John Marshall as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court o Marbury  One of the Justices of the Peace appointed in the alst days of the Adams administration. Marbury was among a group whose authorization papers were signed and sealed but not delivered before President Adams left office o Marshall  A Supreme Court Justice for over 30 years. Wrote the opinion in Marbury v. Madison in 1803 o Madison  Before being elected the fourth President of the US, as Jefferson’s Secretary of State, one of James Madison’s duties was to deliver  The Events o 1800 Adams lost re-election to Jefferson o Before leaving, they tried to maintain control of the courts and as many other offices as possible before Jefferson assumed office on March 4, 1801 o Adams appointed 16 new federal court judges and 42 justices of the peace. The Senate confirmed all 16 federal circuit court judges provided for the Judiciary Act of 1801 o On his last night in office he signed and sealed all of the commissions o Document appointing Marbury was signed and sealed but not delivered before Adams left office o Jefferson refused to recognize the appointment because it had not been delivered. Madison was supposed to deliver it o 1803 Supreme Court issued its opinion in Marbury v Madison. Declared that although Marbury had a right to his appointment, the court was unable to enforce that right under the Judiciary Act of 1789 because it conflicted with the Constitution o The case stands for the important concept of judicial review that allows the Supreme Court to overrule acts of Congress if they are unconstitutional  Courts don’t make law, the legislative bodies in the nation do Death of Justice Scalia o 9 justices on the Supreme Court o Many decisions go 5 to 4 o Justice Scalia was often o If a decision is made that is 4 to 4 the decision goes to the highest appellate court, or they can put the case on hold to hear when the 9 Justice is appointed o All of the cases that Justice Scalia was working on currently will have his participation thrown out. Those cases will need to be reheard or put on hold
