Marbury V Madison How did this case establish the supreme court’s power of judicial review?
The Supreme Court is seen in history as a reflection of that certain era. Marbury vs. Madison appealed the previous court decision that separate but equal was constitutional. Upon this court case, the Supreme Court deliberated the true meaning of separate but equal. Once the Court decided that it is inherently impossible for humans to establish “separate but equal” without depriving another group. The Courts appealed the decision.
This case showed how important it was for the Supreme Court to establish review of cases in events where a decision could have been made through a somewhat biased lens. It proved that the Supreme Court was viable to making mistakes.
