Episode 8: Sturges v. Crowninshield

The complexities in Sturges v. Crowninshield and Ogden v. Saunders are apparent as there is no clear majority decision to be made. Although both sides finally come to a consensus, it is not without some bargaining with regards to the combination of bankruptcy laws and constitutional laws in the United States. New York is the epicenter for these two major cases, and many questions arise out of state legislation they passed. Listen for more info! --- Support this podcast:

Episode 7: Martin v. Hunter's Lessee

Although Chief Justice John Marshall had to recuse himself from this case for a conflict of interest, Martin v. Hunter's Lessee serves as a bright spot for the federal judiciary where they finally see that they can apply the acts of judicial review to entire state governments, not just the legislature or executive branches. While the case is pretty soundly cut and dry, there remains a lot of doubt about how to go about the decision. Listen to find out more! --- Support this podcast:

Episode 6: U.S. v. Hudson and Goodwin

United States v. Hudson and Goodwin serves as the intersection between the Circuit Courts and the Supreme Court, as well as the intertwining of constitutional and criminal law. The case deals with libel against public officials in the Circuit Courts, but the Supreme Court has to answer one basic question: can federal courts hear a case where they have no jurisdiction in criminal, or common law, and the act is not deemed illegal by the U.S. Congress, nor the Constitution.

Episode 4: Marshall and Marbury v. Madison

John Marshall proved to be a very influential early politician in the United States, but his main legacy sits on the Supreme Court. As Chief Justice he had the ability to preside over many landmarks decisions, none more powerful than the case of Marbury v. Madison. Finally, judicial review comes into focus for the court, but not exactly in the way many imagined it would. --- Support this podcast:

Episode 3: The Start of Judicial Review

This episode represents the first official attempts at establishing some form of judicial review in the United States Supreme Court. In the first, Chisolm v. Georgia, we see this process fail, but in the latter, Hylton v. United States, we see quite the opposite. Both of these cases start an important process in the Federal government that ultimately comes in 1803 with Marbury v. Madison. --- Support this podcast:
