This case came about because President Marbury refused to honor the last-minute judicial appointments of Pres. Madison.
2. Marbury wanted the courts to issue of writ of mandamus, a court order forcing Jefferson to give him his commission.
3. The Supreme Court ruled that the courts did have the right to issues writs of mandamus under the Judiciary Act of 1789 which fairly and judiciously grants the courts the power of writs of mandamus.
4. In Marbury v. Madison, the U.S. Supreme Court asserted its power to review acts of Congress and invalidate those that conflict with the United States Constitution.
5. Overall, this case was important because it asserted the courts' power of judicial review.
are these right?
