10JUDICIAL AUTHORITY NATIONALISM PROPERTY RIGHTS MARSHALL'S DECISIONSJUDICIAL AUTHORITYSupreme Court has the power to declare a law unconstitutional with the principle of judicial review.NATIONALISMThe National Government is over the states.PROPERTY RIGHTSPrivate property is sacred and contracts legal.
11MARSHALL'S DECISIONS Marbury vs. Madison, 1803 Case: William Marbury, a Federalist and a “midnight appointment” of President Adams, did not receive his commission from Sec. of State, James Madison. Marbury asked the SC to issue a “writ of mandamus” forcing Madison to deliver his commission.Decision/Reason: Marshall dismissed suit, but in doing so struck down part of Judiciary Act of 1789 because SC had no authority to give Marbury his commission.Significance: Established precedent of “judicial review” and the Supreme Court, not states had power to declare laws of Congress unconstitutional.
12Earlier, the belief was the states could nullify a law MARBURY VS MADISONPrior to this case, the Supreme Court had been the weakest of the three branches of government.Earlier, the belief was the states could nullify a law1803, the Supreme Court established its role as the final arbitrator (authority) of the meaning of the Constitution and its position of equality.By setting a precedent for judicial review or the Supreme Court can declare a law unconstitutional not the states or Congress.It also “sent the message” that the National Government is the last authority thus reinforcing Marshall’s belief in a strong central government over the states.
13Fletcher v. Peck (1810) MARSHALL'S DECISIONS Case: involved Georgia legislature, bribed, granted 35 million acres in the Yazoo River, Mississippi to private speculators. Next legislature cancelled transaction. Appealed to the Supreme Court.Decision/Reason: SC concluded a state could not pass legislation invalidating a contract thus protecting property rights against popular pressures. State law cannot impair contracts violates ConstitutionSignificance: Overturned a state decision because the legislative grant was a contract and national govt. is over the states.
14Shaping the Government MARSHALL'S DECISIONSShaping the GovernmentMartin v. Hunter’s Lease (1816)The Supreme Court established the principle that it had jurisdiction over state courts in cases involving constitutional rights
15McCulloch v. Maryland (1819) MARSHALL'S DECISIONSMcCulloch v. Maryland (1819)Case: The state of MD tried to collect a tax from the Second Bank of the United StatesDecision/Reason: Using a loose interpretation of the Constitution, Marshall ruled that the federal government had the implied power to create the bank (which was in question)Significance: A state could not tax a federal institution because “the power to tax is the power to destroy” and that federal laws are supreme over state laws
16Cohens v. Virginia (1821) MARSHALL'S DECISIONS Case: In VA, the Cohens were convicted of selling Washington, D.C. lottery tickets authorized by CongressDecision/Reason: Marshall and the Court upheld the conviction. Case established the principle that the SC could review a state court’s decision involving any of the powers of the federal governmentSignificance: Solidified the belief that the Supreme Court has the last and final say in law.
17Gibbons v. Ogden (1821) MARSHALL'S DECISIONS Case: NY state granted a monopoly to a steamboat company that conflicted with a charter authorized by CongressDecision/Reason: Marshall ruled NY monopoly was unconstitutional, establishing the federal govt’s broad control of interstate commerce. Congress regulates commerce.Significance: The decision secures the concept of a common market and prevents states from impeding (disrupting) commerce.

24Monroe accepted Adams's advice. monroe doctrineMONROE DOCTRINEAdams advised, "It would be more candid ... to avow our principles explicitly to Russia and France, than to come in as a cock-boat in the wake of the British man-of-war."Monroe accepted Adams's advice.Not only must Latin America be left alone, he warned, but also Russia must not encroach southward on the Pacific coast. ". . . the American continents,"He stated, "by the free and independent condition which they have assumed and maintain, are henceforth not to be considered as subjects for future colonization by any European Power."
