realized that the judicial review has the amount of power that is able to say what things are unconstitutional or not. Marshall’s creation of judicial review has served well throughout the years. Judicial review is a vital power that separates the three branches of government from one another. The judicial branch now has essentially a one up on the other branches because they have the ability to interpret the laws and change them if necessary. The court case of Marbury V. Madison opened up the doors for the U.S. Supreme Court to hold more power. The court's actions led to Chief Justice John Marshall to create a judicial review which allowed his to state that certain laws are unconstitutional. The role of the court was not defined in a manner that was clear to all parties, this is where Marshall took action to create a system that benefitted the judicial branch of the government. The Supreme Court becomes the overriding law because it will be decided what laws go against the constitution and what laws
Marbury V. Madison 5 will be defined as unconstitutional and become void. Now the Judicial Branch of the government has the power to interpret and execute laws that may challenge the constitution. This makes the judicial branch of the government very powerful and puts it on the same length as the other two branches of government.
