A Quote by John Marshall on conflict, decisions, duty, and laws

It is emphatically the province and duty of the judicial department to say what the law is. . . . If two laws conflict with each other, the courts must decide on the operation of each. . . . This is of the very essence of judicial duty.

John Marshall (1755 - 1835)
