The state legislature where Brighton was governor passed a statute giving him the power to nullify the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution. Brighton exercised this power by eliminating the First Amendment. He then shut down all state newspapers that opposed his reelection. The editor of the Sunlight-Times brought suit to stop the closing of his newspaper. Explain whether the editor will win the suit.
Of course the editor will win the suit. The U.S. Constitution takes precedence over all laws passed by states or the U.S. Congress.
