    This case done back in the 1990s sets a precedence for state's rights and provides hope on the possibility of states nullifying federal law based on their unconstitutionality.

    Good read.... not sure that is going to stop this bunch from trying. The constitution seems to be regarded as nothing more than an obstacle to them.

    It seems that the SC has sided with limited powers of the federal government and this could allow a state to present their case based on the same precedence.
