It doesn't have to be a Constitutionality case. The SCOTUS ruling also address Use of Force.
As a former lawschool professor, I can assure you that it most certainly does have to be a "constitutionality case." That is the only way that a state court case can reach the Supreme Court. The Supremes can choose to hear any case coming up in the Federal Court system (US District/ Court of Claims/ TaxCourt/etc, Courts of Appeal. But to hear an appeal from a state court, certiorarican only be granted if here is a constitutional issue, or if the state court invalidated a federal statute, which, in itself, is a constitutional issue.
