The money quote out out of the ruling was this from Justice Anthony Kennedy (writing for the majority):
“The laws and Constitution are designed to survive, and remain in force, in extraordinary times.”
C-Span is linking to the audio of the oral arguments that took place in that case last year. (Dork that I am, I listened to this last night while I was the elliptical at the gym.)
It's worth a listen here.
It's fascinating to hear the voices of the justices and their interplay with the attorneys. (Remember that the release of audio from the oral arguments is still quite new for a court that continues to refuse TV cameras to record its proceedings.)
