As with the theory of popular consent to the constitution, a role for popular
sovereignty emerged only gradually. In the early judicial-review cases, it was not
unusual for both attorney arguments and court opinions to rely on unwritten “

American citizen. Alexander Hamilton defended Waddington, arguing that the

defend against such claims, and he adds that judgments were consequently
entered against the defendants in other suits, or compromises made, without
serious contest.
