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 “
constitutional” rights, as well as on written texts.25 For instance, in 1784, attorney

Rutgers v. Waddington, New York, 1784 — 25 Very soon after the judges of
Virginia had asserted the right to declare legislative acts invalid, an issue was
