Marbury v. Madison : 5 US 137 (1803):
“No provision of the Constitution is designed to be without effect,” “Anything that is in conflict is
null and void of law”, “Clearly, for a secondary law to come in conflict with the supreme Law was illogical,
for certainly, the supreme Law would prevail over all other laws and certainly our forefathers had intended
that the supreme Law would be the bases of all law and for any law to come in conflict would be null and
void of law, it would bare no power to enforce, in would bare no obligation to obey, it would purport to
settle as if it had never existed, for unconstitutionality would date from the enactment of such a law, not
from the date so branded in an open court of law, no courts are bound to uphold it, and no Citizens are
bound to obey it. It operates as a near nullity or a fiction of law.”
If any statement, within any law, which is passed, is unconstitutional, the whole law is unconstitutional by
Marbury v. Madison.
A group of reporters that go through and keep track of all court cases that have come before the
courts, especially the Supreme Court and they clarify, before the court, all the cases. All cases which
have cited Marbury v. Madison case, to the Supreme Court has not ever been over turned. See
