A landmark case in United States law. It formed the basis for the exercise of judicial review in the United States under Article III of the Constitution.
This case resulted from a petition to the Supreme Court by William Marbury, who had been appointed by President John Adams as Justice of the Peace in the District of Columbia but whose commission was not subsequently delivered. Marbury petitioned the Supreme Court to force Secretary of State James Madison to deliver the documents, but the court, with John Marshall as Chief Justice, denied Marbury's petition, holding that the part of the statute upon which he based his claim, the Judiciary Act of 1789, was unconstitutional.

The first affidavit, along with the documents identified within the affidavit, provide Prima facie evidence of the foundation upon which the ratification was based. Most states have published the Titles of Nobility Amendment somewhere during the period of 1818 to 1876. Most states, in their "Rules of Evidence", also provide that any publication by state or federal government may be entered into the record. Assert the Law of the Land
