So, when Ravara's counsel (in an earlier case cited by Marbury's 
counsel) moved to quash an indictment because it was brought in the 
circuit court instead of the supreme court, this move was of a sort not 
supported by the legal culture?

I don't get it.  Nor do I get the statement in another post that in 
1800, Jefferson and Madison were "outsiders."
