Marbury v. Madison was emblematic of the political battle between the Federalist Party and the Democratic-Republican Party (formerly called the Anti-Federalists) for control of the Judicial branch of government.

John Marshall defused the political tension by giving the new Jefferson administration a narrow ruling on Marbury that satisfied the Democratic-Republicans, but simultaneously enhanced the power of the judiciary by clearly explicating the Court's right of judicial review, by declaring Section 13 of the Judiciary Act of 1789 unconstitutional (a legal maneuver).

President Jefferson was not pleased with that aspect of the ruling and predicted the Supreme Court would become an "oligarchy," but had no grounds to challenge Marshall because the decision was in his party's, and his administration's, favor.
