6. It was John Marshall who established that the constitution means what the SCOTUS says it means

 

The longest-serving Chief Justice of the United States, Marshall dominated the Court for over three decades and played a significant role in the development of the American legal system. Most notably, he reinforced the principle that federal courts are obligated to exercise judicial review, by disregarding purported laws if they violate the Constitution.

John Marshall (September 24, 1755 – July 6, 1835)
