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
54 Cohens 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.

". . . 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."
