McColloch vs Maryland (1819)

attempt by Maryland to destroy a branch of the bank of the US by imposing a tax on its notes.
-John Marshall, speaking for the court, declared the bank constitutional by invoking the Hamiltonian doctrine of implied powers/
- Marshall denied the right of Maryland to tax the bank
