Judicial Review was created after the 1803 Supreme Court case, Marbury V. Madison. Judicial Review is the court's authority to examine an executive or legislative act and to invalidate that act if it is contrary to constitutional principles. Before Thomas Jefferson (Democrat) became president, the previous president, John Adams, quickly appointed 58 Federalists for government jobs. Adam’s Secretary of State, John Marshall, was suppose to finish the paperwork, but he failed to deliver to 17 appointees. The Main Events
Marshall assumed the new Secretary of State, James Madison, would finish his delivery, but Jefferson told him NOT to deliver. Jefferson claimed those individuals could not take office united they had paper in their hand. William Marbury did not get his papers and sued Madison, asking the Supreme Court to have his papers delivered. The court had to decide if Marbury was entitled to his job, and if so, could the court force Madison to appoint Marbury to his position?
