This was a case decided back in 1873 that eviscerated the PorI clause of the 14th.
The 14th Amendment pretty much voided the Court's decision in Dred Scott v. Sanford, and they despised it. Though Chief Justice Taney had been succeeded by Chase, they still felt stung.
Sometimes it’s nice not to destroy the world for a change.
