In the brief filed with the Supreme Court of the United States, Petitioners argue to overturn the Slaughterhouse Cases in reference to the Privileges or Immunities Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.
What Petitioners failed to see in their references to the Slaughterhouse Cases was that there were two citizens the Court was referring to, and not one. The Petitioners also failed to see that Section 1, Clause 1 and Section 1, Clause 2 of the Fourteenth Amendment were treated differently by the Slaughterhouse court. The purported quote of Article IV, Section 2, Clause 1 (OF) was nothing unusual in Slaughterhouse. And, the Petitioners also make the erroneous conclusion about a citizen of a State being the same as a citizen of the several States.
