The Mexican Supreme Court V. Chief Justice John Marshall


The Plaintiff was a legitimate candidate to occupy the office of Mexican Ombudsman. He presented thinking he was participating, as the Mexican Constitution states, in a reelection of the Ombudsman. The Ombudsman, based in a Secondary Law, was ratified. The legitimate Candidate pleaded through “Juicio de Amparo” (a Mexican resource similar to the “Injunction”) that both the Federal Law and the ratification were unconstitutional. The Mexican Supreme Court denied the petition based in an inexistent exception to the “Juicio de Amparo.” The Inter-­-American Commission on Human Rights is about to emit or not to emit a recommendation. The Inter-­-American Court of Human Rights could accept jurisdiction.
