Judicial review is important because laws passed need to be checked to make sure they are constitutional. This review is performed by members of the Supreme Court
Definition of Judicial Review Judicial review is the power of the courts to review laws, treaties, policies or executive orders relevant to cases before the court and nullify (overturn) those that are found unconstitutional. Judicial review is part of the United States' system of checks and ba…lances on government. The Supreme Court has the power to review acts of the Legislative (Congress) and Executive (Presidential) branches to ensure they don't become too powerful or abrogate the Constitutional rights of the country's citizens. Historical Examples The US Supreme Court first exercised judicial review 1796, in the case of Hylton v. United States, although the rationale for using it had been laid in Federalist No. 78. Hylton v. United States was the first instance in which the Supreme Court evaluated the constitutionality of a federal law. In Hylton , the legislation, a carriage tax, was upheld. In a later case that year, Ware v. Hylton, the Ellsworth Court determined The Treaty of Paris took precedence over an otherwise constitutional state law and nullified the law. The US Supreme Court case most often credited with affirming the doctrine of judicial review is Marbury v Madison, (1803) in which Chief Justice John Marshall declared Section 13 of the Judiciary Act of 1789 unconstitutional. This was the first time the Supreme Court overturned federal legislation. It greatly strengthened the power of the judicial branch, which had thus far been weaker than the other two. More Current Examples Many cases that come before the Supreme Court involve judicial review, because the justices are often asked to determine whether a law, or the application of a law, violates a person's or groups constitutional rights. In their decision in the case Arizona Free Enterprise Club Freedom Club PAC, et al. v. Bennett, Secretary of the State of Arizona, (2011), the US Supreme Court held that an Arizona law, The Arizona Citizens Clean Elections Act, which granted dollar-for-dollar matching campaign funds from the state treasury to candidates for public office who had opted for the public financing route instead of private donations unconstitutional under the First Amendment because it placed a heavier burden on privately subsidized candidates than on publicly subsidized candidates, which unfairly limited the privately subsidized candidates' political speech (in a practical sense, it also had the potential to cost taxpayers a lot of money, but that wasn't the question before the Court). The Court also exercises judicial review when it evaluates and upholds a particular law, as was the case in DePierre v. United States, (2011), in which a defendant challenged federal sentencing guidelines that appeared to penalize manufacturers and distributors of cocaine-based substances (like crack) more than it penalized manufacturers and distributors of pure cocaine. The defendant argued that in order to apply harsher sentencing under federal law (U. S. C. Â§841(b)(1)(A)) the jury should be instructed that the prosecution had to prove the cocaine-based substances was actually "crack" cocaine. The defendant believed the law was vague and subject to a different interpretation than was commonly used. The Court rejected this argument, holding that the law was sufficiently clear as written. Some better known examples of judicial review include Roe v. Wade , (1973), in which the Court overturned a Texas law prohibiting abortion; Brown v. Board of Education, (1954), in which the Court overturned state laws permitting racially segregated public schools; Texas v. Johnson, (1989), in which the Court overturned a Texas law prohibiting desecration of the US flag; and Lawrence v. Texas, (2003), in which the Court overturned a Texas anti-sodomy law as an unconstitutional invasion of privacy. Any case that challenges state or federal laws involves judicial review, so there are many, many examples to choose from (and they don't all involve Texas laws). ( Full Answer )
Judicial review is not specifically granted in the Constitution, itis granted in the 1803 case of Marbury v. Madison. The ideaoriginated in 1610 in England.
Over the years, laws have been passed that have later been considered unconstitutional. Laws about segregation and discrimination are good examples. This power allows courts to decide whether a law or presidential action is in agreement with the Constitution. The Supreme Court holds the ultimate aut…hority to make this decision. If a court decides that a law conflicts with the court Constitution, that law is declared unconstitutional. ( Full Answer )

The Marbury v. Madison decision and provides the SupremeCourt with the power to interpret the Constituti…on. Judicial Review is not an American invention, but a standard partof British common law that became part of the legal process in theUnited States. The first recorded use under the US Constitution wasin 1792, when the circuit courts found an act of Congress relatedto military veterans unconstitutional. Congress rewrote the law,without protest, in 1793. The US Supreme Court first exercised judicial review 1796, in thecase of Hylton v.

Judicial review is the right of the Court to declare a law, or action based upon that law, unconstitutional.
Judicial review is not found in the United States Constitution.It's power is only inferred from its provisions and structures.
In the United States, the establishment of Judicial Review is attributed to the case of Marbury v. Madison in 1803, with its roots in the Judiciary Act of 1789. This case raised the question of what happens when an Act of Congress conflicts with the Constitution. The Supreme Court determined that… Acts of Congress that conflict with the Constitution are not law and the Courts are bound instead to follow the Constitution, affirming the principle of judicial review.

Answer #1: The power of the Judicial review is important for several reasons. It confirmed the Supreme Court's power to declare an act of Congress unconstitutional.
The concept of judicial review came from the case decision inMarbury v. Madison in 1803. This decision was written by ChiefJustice John Marshall.
A judicial review serves to explain the constitution. It is theinterpretation of law and its application in modern life.
In the federal government, all the Article III (constitutional) courts that make up the Judicial Branch hold the power of judicial review, but the US Supreme Court is the ultimate authority on the subject. Judicial Branch . US District Courts . US Court of International Trade . US Court of A…ppeals Circuit Courts . Supreme Court of the United States State courts of general jurisdiction may also exercise judicial review, but any serious challenge to a federal law or constitutional issue (called a "federal question") is likely to be brought or appealed in federal court. The states have exclusive jurisdiction over state statutes and state constitutional issues that don't conflict with federal law or the US Constitution. Federal court decisions supersede state court decisions on "federal questions." ( Full Answer )
Although the power of judicial review isn't formally stated in the Constitution, the authority is implied in Article III, and in general by virtue of the Supreme Court's role as head of the Judicial branch of government. Judicial review was adopted from the English practice of common law, and was ge…nerally accepted as a function of the courts for hundreds of years. Marbury v. Madison, 5 US 137 (1803) is considered the first case to fully explicate the right of judicial review in the United States. That power has been recognized (to varying degrees) by all three branches of the US government for more than 200 years. For more information, see Related Questions, below. ( Full Answer )
The bill may possibly be constitutional and needed for the country, but the people in the judicial branch don't think so, making for a flawed system. Judicial Review allows the courts to declare acts of the legislature and the executive to be unconstitutional and thus null and void. It gives the …Judicial Branch the power to interpret the laws and actions of the other two branches and is an important part of the "checks and balances" system established in the Constitution to prevent any one branch from becoming too powerful. Judicial Review may cause a president or Congress to delay some activity or law until they get an opinion from legal advisers as to the constitutionality of the action or law, but it establishes how and who will have the final say as to the constitutionality of that act or law. ( Full Answer )
Answer No. The Constitution prescribes "... one supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish." Article III of the Constitution, listing the powers of the Judiciary, is far shorter than the extensive lists of "enumerated Powers" of the Con…gress in Article I, or of the Executive branch in Article II. The Constitution grants very limited powers to the Courts. The concept of "judicial review" - that a Court has the power to overturn acts of the Legislature - was extremely controversial in 1803 when the Supreme Court unilaterally declared its power in the case of Marbury v. Madison . Answer Although the power of judicial review isn't explicitly stated in the Constitution, the authority is implied in Article III, and in general by virtue of the Supreme Court's role as head of the Judicial branch of government. Article III, Section 1 begins: "The judicial power of the United States, shall be vested in one Supreme Court..." Article III, Section 2 of the Constitution states: "The judicial power shall extend to all cases, in law and equity, arising under this Constitution, the laws of the United States, and treaties made, or which shall be made, under their authority..." [emphasis mine] This clause can be interpreted to mean the Judicial branch has the implied power to determine whether legislation is constitutionally sound, as part of its responsibility to uphold the Constitution. If the Legislative or Executive branches are allowed to act unilaterally, without any form of oversight, then there is no means of protecting the integrity of the Constitution. This responsibility would logically fall to those with an understanding of law, the judiciary, or more specifically, the Supreme Court. The Constitution limits the action of all branches of government, not just the judiciary. The lack of specific instruction for which cases fall under the Court's appellate jurisdiction, as opposed to the specificity of which cases are under its original jurisdiction, tends to suggest the Founding Fathers intended to provide the Court an expanded scope of responsibility with regard to safeguarding the Constitution, not a more limited one. The power of judicial review is also a byproduct of US Supreme Court case law, which is considered an "informal amendment process." Informal amendment simply refers to a standard and excepted constitutional interpretation in use under the American common law system. Despite the term, the informal amendment process isn't typically permanent and doesn't really change the constitution, only the meaning given to various clauses. This understanding changes over time. Marbury v. Madison, 5 US 137 (1803) is considered the first case to fully explicate the right of judicial review. That power has been recognized (to varying degrees) by all three branches of the US government for more than 200 years. Answer Sort of; judicial review is not explicit in the text of the Constitution. However, judicial review is a concept that originates in English common law, with which the Founding Fathers were more than familiar, so it is reasonable to conclude that they expected the Supreme Court to practice the doctrine of judicial review to some extent, even without stating this explicitly. Moreover, five of the 13 original states included explicit provisions in their state constitutions for judicial review before 1785, so the concept was well established in American law even before the current Constitution was ratified.

The Constitution is the supreme law of the land . When there is a conflict between the constitution and any other law, the Constitution must be followed . The judicial branch has a duty to uphold the Constitution
ALL courts have the power of judicial review in the United States, but the US Supreme Court is the ultimate arbiter of the Constitution . "Judicial review," in this case, specifically refers to the authority of the Court to review legislation and other acts of Congress and the President to ensure th…ey comply with the Constitution, and to overrule any laws that are unconstitutional. Chief Justice John Marshall first affirmed this right in Marbury v. Madison, 5 US 137 (1803), when the Court declared Section 13 of the Judiciary Act of 1789 unconstitutional because it extended to the Supreme Court original jurisdiction over all writs of mandamus, which Marshall asserted wasn't one of the enumerated forms of original jurisdiction specified by the Constitution. Under the US Constitution, as interpreted by the early Supreme Court, the power of Judicial Review of legislative acts lies with the courts, and particularly with the Supreme Court. ( Full Answer )

I am not quite sure what you are asking, but it is the power of the courts (any court : federal, state, local) to find an act of Congress, the president or the bureaucracy unconstitutional
Yes and no. If a federal court issues a temporary injunction, or stay, against enforcing a particular law pending the outcome of a case, then the law is suspended unless or until that court, or a higher court, vacates the stay (nullifies the order, allowing the law to be enforced). If no court orde…r is issued relative to the law while the case is under review, it can continue to operate and be enforced. Sometimes the government will voluntarily refrain from using the law pending the Court's decision, however, particularly if they anticipate it may be nullified as a result of the case. This helps reduce the administrative burden and expense of subsequent litigation that may arise if the legislation is determined to be unconstitutional. ( Full Answer )

Judicial review is important in order to determine if new laws are consistent with the US Constitution. However, new laws can only be evaluated if they are part of a case relevant to or challenging the law. The Supreme Court doesn't have authority to review them, otherwise.
You don't. Judicial Review refers to the US Supreme Court's right and process of evaluating the constitutionality of laws or executive orders that are part of cases before the Court. If a majority of the justices believe a law is unconstitutional, they will cite the law, applicable precedents (pr…ior case law), constitutional issues and other reasoning used to arrive at their decision in the opinion of the Court. There is no separate report or document called a "judicial review." For more information, see Related Questions, below. ( Full Answer )

Probably fourth Chief Justice of the United States (Supreme Court), John Marshall , who presided over the case Marbury v. Madison, 5 US 137 (1803.)
Judicial review is primarily a check on the Legislative Branch; however, it can also be used to nullify executive orders, so it is sometimes a check on the Executive Branch.
To decide whether the preceding court correctly decided the case in accordance with law. The appellate court decides whether the preceding court's decisions correctly decided the law in accordance with the facts, whether there were serious errors, or whether the court did something wrong. If there a…re no errors the appellate court upholds or confirms the prior decision. Otherwise it sends it back to the trial court with instructions and potential retrial. Sometimes it finds the decision totally wrong and discards it altogether, potentially because the case should not have been tried or because there was no case. ( Full Answer )
The Constitution provides very little instruction in Article III for how the Judicial Branch should function, except to state there shall be one Supreme Court and to establish jurisdiction over various types of federal cases. Many people infer from this that the Framers didn't intend to allow the co…urts to exercise judicial review; however, it seems more likely they expected them to operate as usual with the exception of explicitly shifting jurisdiction over certain types of cases from the States to the Federal government. This action was necessary because the government established under the Articles of Confederation lacked a federal court system. If the Framers intended to curtail judicial review, an established practice adopted from English common law, they could have expressly prohibited it, as they did in Article I when they told Congress it was forbidden from passing ex post facto laws, bills of attainder, and certain forms of taxes, and as they did in Article III when they specified the federal courts lacked jurisdiction over impeachment trials (these are under the authority of the Senate). Article III Section 1. The 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 establish. The judges, both of the supreme and inferior courts, shall hold their offices during good behaviour, and shall, at stated times, receive for their services, a compensation, which shall not be diminished during their continuance in office. Section 2. The judicial power shall extend to all cases, in law and equity, arising under this Constitution, the laws of the United States, and treaties made, or which shall be made, under their authority;--to all cases affecting ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls;--to all cases of admiralty and maritime jurisdiction;--to controversies to which the United States shall be a party;--to controversies between two or more states;--between a state and citizens of another state;--between citizens of different states;--between citizens of the same state claiming lands under grants of different states, and between a state, or the citizens thereof, and foreign states, citizens or subjects. In all cases affecting ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, and those in which a state shall be party, the Supreme Court shall have original jurisdiction. In all the other cases before mentioned, the Supreme Court shall have appellate jurisdiction, both as to law and fact, with such exceptions, and under such regulations as the Congress shall make. The trial of all crimes, except in cases of impeachment, shall be by jury; and such trial shall be held in the state where the said crimes shall have been committed; but when not committed within any state, the trial shall be at such place or places as the Congress may by law have directed. Section 3. Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court. The Congress shall have power to declare the punishment of treason, but no attainder of treason shall work corruption of blood, or forfeiture except during the life of the person attainted.

Not entirely. Judicial review involves the power to declare a law or Executive Order unconstitutional, but the heart of judicial review is analyzing a law or order relevant to a case before the court to determine whether it is in keeping with constitutional principles, both as written and as ap…plied . A law may be constitutional on its face (as written), but be used in a way that violates the Constitution (as applied). Under these circumstances, the law itself is not declared unconstitutional, but it is prevented from being used in an unconstitutional manner.
