Dred Scott v. Sandford (1857)
His slave master brought him to live for a time in free territory and the free state of Illinois, but eventually returned to Missouri (slave state).
Dred Scott felt that because he had lived in a free territory, he should be free.
Decision: Supreme Court ruled that African Americans were not and could never be citizens. Dred Scott had no right to even file a lawsuit and remained enslaved.
Question: How does this case relate to the case of Marbury v. Madison?
