What was the ruling of the appeals court before McCulloch v Maryland came before the Supreme Court?
The US Supreme Court case, McCulloch v. Maryland, (1918) was initially heard in Baltimore County Court, where a Maryland citizen, John James, sued James McCulloch for failing to pay taxes levied against the Second Bank of the United States. James hoped the court would rule McCulloch had to pay the taxes and that he (James) would collect a portion as a reward. The Baltimore County Court judge upheld Maryland law and found against McCulloch. The case was then appealed to the Maryland Court of Appeals, which affirmed the County Court decision (naturally, the Maryland State courts would uphold their own state laws). McCulloch v. Maryland reached the US Supreme Court on a writ of "Error to the Court of Appeals of the State of Maryland." Case Citation: McCulloch v. Maryland, 17 US 316 (1819)

What Supreme Court cases did Daniel Webster argue?
Daniel Webster (1782-1852) was a famous statesman and constitutional lawyer who argued before the US Supreme Court and won some of the nation's earliest landmark cases (see below). Some of these victories may have been aided by the fact that they involved representing citizens against state interests before the Marshall Court. Chief Justice John Marshall was a Federalist who believed in limiting states' rights. Nevertheless, Daniel Webster was consider brilliant, and a superb orator. He also served twice as Secretary of State, under William Henry Harrison, from 1841-1843, and Millard Fillmore, from 1850-1852, and was elected to seats on the House of Representatives and the Senate.
