Re: US Constitution

Article III, Section 1 of the Constitution provides that "[t]he judicial
Power of the United States, shall be vested in one Supreme Court, and in
such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and
Under this section and the Judiciary Act of 1789, the United States Supreme
Court was created.
Marbury v. Madison, Chief Justice Marshall asserted that the doctrine of
judicial review permitted the Court to review the constitutionality of
congressional legislation.
