Why is the U.S. Supreme Court case Marbury v. Madison important?
Marbury v. Madison is a seminal law case established in Supreme Court history. Understanding Marbury allows lawyers, constitutional scholars, and law students fully understand the intent of the framers in designing our court system. In short the case establishes judicial review - e.g. the ability of federal courts to review causes of action that can be heard by the court. The case establishes the confines and borders of judicial review thus preventing the court from wasting its time.
The Constitution of the United States is robust document that contains within it logic and reason. However, at the end of the day they are just mere words on paper. How then exactly does the Constitution of the U.S. provide us with rights?
The Constitution provides us with rights based on two-step approach. First, we must all agree on our collective acceptance as a country and greater community of the laws, rules, and regulations we all will abide by. Second, we must determine and establish for ourselves the process by and which we will abide by said rules and regulations. With regards to these two steps the Constitution has provided us both a base level of rules as well as the process by which we are to enforce them. Where there is ambiguity or a lack of clarity, then the Constitution provides the governed the ability to elect representatives and leaders to create, write, and enforce new laws and regulations as required.
