One Federalist who had kept his job was Judge William Marbury. Many Republicans argued that all the appointments were aimed at federal power, and the law was unconstitutional. Marbury was appointed by John Adams to keep peace in the capital. When Jefferson took office, he ordered James Madison, who was his secretary of state, to cease the appointments. Under the Judiciary Act of 1801, Marbury sued Section 13 of the Judiciary Act of 1789.
The private company started piling waste into the creek, to which they were eventually charged, as well as the city. This essay will be organized by answering the questions in chronological order; to which in the first question, I will be looking heavily into the case of R.v. Saulte Ste. Marie and Roach. It will incorporate the regulatory offences and the mental blameworthiness and how strict liability acts as a balance between the two.
Although he was in office before the actual war broke out, Buchanan was ruling over a nation that was quickly dividing. James had good intentions but he lacked personal will and the political skills to make a strong stand. With the right skills, he might’ve prevented the Civil War. Buchanan tried to deal with the issues of slavery and the tension between the North and the South by relying on constitutional doctrines. However, the North would not accept a document that favored the South, so Buchanan was greatly challenged.
NAME OF THE CASE: Marbury v Madison 1803 VOTE: The vote count was 4-0 BASIC FACTS OF THE CASE: In March of 1801, William Marbury (along with many others being appointed to government posts) was appointed to be a Justice of the Peace near the end of Adams administration of the presidency.

Fortas argued Gideon 's case by using wether Betts V. Brady should be reconsidered. The Betts V. Brady case had ruled that (akin to Gideon’s) that the fourteenth amendment requires states to appoint counsel only under special circumstances. It has been an unpopular standard and was constantly criticized but nevertheless was in effect. In only two short months, the verdict for Gideon 's case had been decided, Betts V. Brady was found unconstitutional, as it violated the sixth amendment 's right to a fair and speedy trial and that looking at the fourteenth amendment, which guarantees due process of law, the court was wrong to not have appointed Gideon a lawyer. The court then ruled that Gideon should be given a retrial, this time with a court appointed
The Supreme Court did not share Lincoln’s opinion. Especially, the Chief Justice Roger Taney who, in his role as the federal circuit judge, ruled that Lincoln’s suspension of Habeas Corpus was unconstitutional in a decision called Ex Parte Merryman. He did so after his recommendation for a trial of Merryman in order to determine if there were any legitimate reasons for his arrest met if refusal form Merryman captors. In the end, The President ignored Taney ruling, and Congress never contested Lincoln’s Habeas Corpus decision. Lincoln also met with strong resistance form the general public in regards to his executive order.
In spite of this, not everyone was happy about the new Constitution. This broke people up into two groups: Anti-Federalists and Federalists. The Anti-Federalists were those in favor of strong states’ rights. They disliked the Constitution because they believed that there was a chance that Constitution would destroy the freedoms the colonies fought for. They were scared of tyranny, especially pertaining to the fact that under the new Constitution, the national government, or Congress, would be able to make decisions without even asking for the states’ permission.
Roosevelt 's executive order 9066, was legal because the executive order was issued during war, Some might say it was illegal because it was going against ‘equal protection of the law ' clause of the 14th Amendment. Supreme Court justified the executive order as a wartime necessity (http://www.ushistory.org/us/51e.asp.). Laws can also give additional powers to the President but when using an executive order, the Congress can override it with a new law. In section 1 of the 14th amendment, it states that all natural citizens should be treated fairly and there should be no state enforcing a law to abridge the rights and privileges of citizens; without due process of laws. Therefore, President Roosevelt created an executive order, creating the
Shays Rebellion led to George Washington ultimately coming out of retirement. Along with Samuel Adams, General William Shepard also tried to suppress the Shays Rebellion. In order for a rebellion to be successful in reaching its goal, there must be an individual who is smart in the sense that coming up with good tactics is essential. This did not apply to the Shays Rebellion. The Shays Rebellion was not successful.
When a person casts a vote they are taking the chance that enough people will vote the same way as them in order to accomplish their goal. The problem with this is that “Even voting for the right is doing nothing for it,” (Thoreau 430), when they are on the side of the minority. Thoreau believed that because of this people should do more than vote and take a stand. In order to show his objection to the war for instance, he decided not to pay taxes that would go to fund it, and encouraged others to do that same. Furthermore, I am partly in agreement with Thoreau, “… I ask for, not at once no government, but at once a better government,” (Thoreau 425).
