The Course of Judicial Review in the State of Ohio. The first constitution
of Ohio was framed in 1802, and was not submitted to popular
vote for approval. Fashioned by followers of Thomas Jefferson, the
new government had as its cardinal principle the doctrine of legislative
supremacy. With no power over patronage, and with the veto
power denied to him as well, the governor was but a "shadow executive."
Since the judges were appointed by the legislature for the limited
term of seven years, the judiciary also played a subordinate r6le.
