interposition

Intervention. In a distinct sense, a fully discredited and disavowed concept that the United States is a compact of states, any one of which may interpose its sovereignty against the enforcement within its orders of any decision of the Supreme Court or Act of Congress, irrespective of the fact that the constitutionality of the act has been established by a decision of the Supreme Court, and that, a state having so acted, the law or decision is not enforceable in the interposing state until approved by an amendment to the Constitution of the United States. Bush v Orleans Parish School Board (DC La) 188 F Supp 916, affd per curiam op 365 US 569, 5 L Ed 2d 806, 81 S Ct 754. See intervening cause; intervention. inter praesentes.
