ETA: the author of that wikipedia page clearly misses the tongue in cheek nature of the opinion, which you can get at the bottom of the page

Why isn't there a voting option for those of us who learned about it in high school? The

Marbury is one of the better conlaw cases.

Crimlaw/torts = full of fun cases.
Contracts/Property = in the middle.
Civpro/conlaw = no fun.

Marbury's nothing compared to the number of car accident hypos you'll encounter if you take Torts & Civ Pro in the same semester.
