All others may answer, but for 20 points and it will count as your daily.

Q52. The landmark decision of the Supreme Court in the case of Marbury v Madison 1803 was the first occasion upon which the Court declared an Act of Congress beyond its powers aka unconstitutional.. "a law repugnant to the constitution is void". It was not, however, the first occasion upon which the Court was asked to rule on the validity of an Act of Congress. In the 1790s the Court upheld the validity of an Act - the case concerned the validity of an act levying certain taxes - what is the name of that case?

Q53. Following on from Q52 - the next case in which the Supreme Court declared an Act of Congress void was in the 1850s, but the decision in Marbury v Madison was not referred to when the Court delivered its judgement. It wasn't until a case in the 1890s that the Supreme Court quoted from or referred to the decision of Marbury v Madison, in delivering a judgement in which it declared an Act void. What is the name of that case?

Q58. The last race run by Phar Lap was over a mile and a quarter (2011m) in Mexico in 1932. The top class field included an American Derby winner, Preakness Stakes winner, a horse which ran 2nd in the Kentucky Derby, and the Louisiana Derby Winner, to name but a few. He was top-weight, and jumped out of the barriers second last. His jockey kept him wide and out of trouble because of the dirt track (as we race on grass in Australia he was not used to having dirt fly up into his face during a race). On the back stretch his jockey let him go and he ran around the entire field and into the lead before the turn into the home straight, then drew away and broke the race record, beating Reveille Boy who came home 2nd and Scimitar who ran 3rd. The winning numbers in that race were 9-4-2. What is the name of the horse which finished fourth, and what was its number?

Q59. It was the Tue 05-Apr-1932 in the USA when Phar Lap died. Here in Australia it was the morning of Wed 06-Apr-1932 and at 10:30am the High Court of Australia delivered its judgement in a landmark constitutional case. The late morning edition of The Sun newspaper carried news of the decision as the page one lead news item and, in much smaller type in the Stop Press, also on page one, was an unconfirmed report from California that Phar Lap had died, cause of death unknown. In its main afternoon edition The Sun had two page one leads " High Court Verdict Favours Lyons" and "Phar Lap's Mystery Death". This case was subsequently instrumental in the "unprecedented" dismissal of the Lang Government by the Governor of the State of New South Wales. What is the name of this High Court case?
