    The long term results were that the federal government was considered to be superior to state governments. The federal government can do whatever the Constitution allows it to do, but the states can only act where they do not interfere with the federal government. States' rights were diminished.

    It was one of many John Marshal Supreme Court decisions that increased the power of the federal government. I don't know the exact circumstances but Maryland tried to tax a branch of the Bank of the US and it said that a state can't tax the federal government. An example of this today is that states make no money off National Parks that are within that state, only the Federal Government does.
