Regardless of this decision, how is it actually possible for a judge to make the Constitution void?
That doesn't make much sense to me.... does it actually make it void or is it in essence allowing judges to legislate from the bench legally?
I'm definitely going to have to find out more, but if true, this is the proverbial John Hancock on the Death Certificate for the USA, with time of death being the minute this was ruled on.
Canada is looking might nice right about now.

Here I just read this protectourparks.wordpress.com... ct-for-boat-rides-under-niagara-falls-3/
He is suing for a billion dollar contract to have boat rides under Niagra Falls, and to get out of a contract with Maid Mist in New York.
This is what everyone believes SCOTUS ripped up the Constitution for, they believe some guy to says he will make a billion dollars with the attraction, he's pissed of that he is not being let out his contracts and claims all Fed Judges in GA are corrupt. I don't know about the judges but a contract is a contract and he signed it.
Atlanta-based Alcatraz Media and businessman William M. Windsor are jointly attempting to obtain the billion dollar contract for boat rides under Niagara Falls. The boat rides began in 1846, and there has never been an opportunity for anyone to bid to offer the service until Windsor took legal action against the Province of Ontario and the State of New York. This case is currently being handled by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice under case number DC 09-105JR.
The governments of Ontario and New York lease the park land on each side of the Niagara River to a third party so that boat rides can be offered. These rights in Ontario, Canada are granted by The Niagara Parks Commission, and these rights in New York are granted by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.
The boat rides at Niagara Falls are one of the biggest tourist attractions in North America. Hundreds of millions of people have taken rides on the “Maid of the Mist” since 1846 and 2,500,000 people currently ride the boat each year. When Alcatraz Media discovered in October that the rights to operate these services on government-owned land had been given to profit-making companies for 163 years without ever giving anyone the opportunity to bid, Alcatraz and Windsor cried foul.
Windsor and Alcatraz Media originally asked for the opportunity to bid in 2005, but attempts were quickly rejected. Ripley’s Entertainment asked for the opportunity to bid in 2008, and their efforts were similarly dismissed. One of the Niagara Parks Commissioners, Bob Gale, filed a complaint about the secret process with the Ontario government. When Alcatraz and Windsor learned of this, they began working full-time to build public support against secret practices such as this since governments are expected to be fair, open, and to allow competition for such lucrative opportunities.
