The official citation of the case is Marbury v. Madison, 5 US 137 (1803) For more information, see Related Questions, below.

Asked in US Supreme Court
Which president was established by the supreme court ruling in Marbury vMadison?
Why didn't Madison testify in the Marbury v Madison case?
James Madison, Secretary of State under President Jefferson, was only the nominal (named) defendant in the case because he inherited the office responsible for delivering the signed commissions. Madison had not yet arrived in Washington when the events occurred, so he would have had no testimony to offer. Levi Lincoln, the US Attorney General, temporarily performed Madison's duties and did testify before the Court.

What did Jefferson order his secretary of state NOT to deliver?
Trick question. The test answer is probably "William Marbury's commission." The flaw in the question is that Jefferson's Secretary of State, James Madison, hadn't yet arrived in Washington when a portion of the justice-of-the-peace commissions disappeared. It is unknown who, exactly, disposed of approximately half of the paperwork for the 42 men former President Adams appointed justice-of-the-peace under the Organic Act of 1801, because Chief Justice Marshall deliberately avoided asking that question during the Marbury v. Madison trial. Levi Lincoln, US Attorney General under Thomas Jefferson, temporarily served as Secretary of State before Madison arrived; however, he claimed not to know what had become of the commissions. Thomas Jefferson may have discarded them himself, or may have ordered one of the office clerks to destroy them. The papers were never seen again, and their fate is lost to history. On thing is clear, however: Thomas Jefferson never ordered James Madison not to deliver the commissions; the incident occurred before Madison took office. Case Citation: Marbury v. Madison, 5 US 137 (1803)

What happened to James Madison after the Marbury v Madison case?
Madison remained Secretary of State under Thomas Jefferson until 1809, when he became the fourth President of the United States. Madison served as President until 1817. After leaving office, Madison retired to his Virginia plantation, Montpelier, where he declined in physical and mental health, exhibiting symptoms that today may be recognized as obsessive-compulsive disorder and generalized anxiety disorder. He later succeeded Thomas Jefferson as Rector, or President, of the University of Virginia, a position he held from 1826 until his death in 1836. There is some evidence he was bedridden with anxiety for several years of his tenure. Madison was also selected to participate in the Virginia Constitutional Convention in 1829.
