8137. STATE RIGHTS, Nullification.—

Every State has a natural right in cases not
within the compact (casus non fæderis) to
nullify of their own authority all assumptions
of power by others within their limits;
without this right, they would be under the
dominion, absolute and unlimited, of whosoever
might exercise this right of judgment for
Kentucky Resolutions. Washington ed. ix, 469. Ford ed., vii, 301.
