What happened
What happened?

  • Gibbons was running a ferry service in interstate waters

  • Ogden got New York state to mandate that Gibbons was not allowed to use NY waters

  • Gibbon’s sanction came from Congress, so he sued Ogden, as his sanction came from a higher power than NY

  • Ogden argued that, since navigation is not trade, and therefore not interstate trade, Congress could not regulate it, but NY could

  • Gibbons won

  • Due to the Supremacy Clause, Congress’ law overpowered and invalidated New York’s law

  • The Commerce Clause was expanded by Marshall to include “navigation” as part of “commerce”
