Gibbons v. Ogden

steamboat case of 1824. Started because New York wanted to grant to a private concern a monopoly of waterborne commerce between New York and New Jersey.  Marshall (vocab word) said that the constitution conferred on Congress alone the control of interstate commerce. Marshall again attacked the states' rights, while upholding the soveriegn powers of the federal government.  Interstate streams were cleared of this judicial snag.
