John Marshall and Judicial Nationalism: ID Supreme Court Cases
9. John Marshall and Judicial Nationalism: ID Supreme Court Cases
Despite the slavery setback, post-Ghent nationalism was fostered by the Supreme Court, which was ruled by the ever present John Marshall. In the 1819, Supreme Court Case McCulloch v. Maryland, the state of Maryland was attempting to destroy a branch of the Bank of the United States, by imposing a tax on its notes. John Marshal denied Maryland its right to tax the bank, ruling it constitutional, following the doctrine of implied powers, which formulated the doctrine of "loose construction." He did this because, he said the Constitution derived from the consent of the people and thus, permitted the government to act for their benefit. Two years later, in 1821, Marshal was given the opportunity to defend federal powers in the case of Cohens v. Virginia. The Cohens were found guilty of illegally selling lottery tickets, however, the state of Virginia "lost" in that they were shown how the Supreme Court had power over the decisions of the state supreme courts, leaving state's rights supporters dumbfounded. In the case of Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824, New York attempted to grant to a private concern a monopoly of waterborne commerce between New York and New Jersey. In response, Marshall told the upstart state that the Constitution conferred on Congress alone the control of interstate commerce. Thus, once again re-enforcing the power of the federal government.
