The Justice Marshall defined it in the Venus decision as early as 1814 and his definition has never been challenged -- until today by the Obotocrazies.
Defined by comments made in dicta, while dissenting the majority decision. They were Chief Justice Marshall's opinion alone and thus are not legally binding. Try again.
Defined by comments made in dicta, while dissenting the majority decision.
Defined nonetheless -- and defined is as defined does -- and no other Justice has ever challenged that definition or offered his own that is any different.
And it concurs with the definition used in the Senate's SR511 -- Get used to it.
You're wrong. Get used to that too.
