The clause was the principled anchor and substantive guide that was lost when a bitterly divided Court eviscerated it in the Slaughterhouse Cases. Nevertheless, here too the current Court has begun, very tentatively, to revisit those issues. In a case decided in its 1998 term, for example, the Court explicitly revived the Privileges or Immunities Clause to limit state power, even if its application of the clause may 23 Butchers’ Benevolent Association v. S. (16 Wall) 36 (1873). 25 Thus, the Court’s federalism jurisprudence is beginning to limit not simply the federal government, under the doctrine of enumerated powers, but states as well, under the federal oversight authority afforded by the Fourteenth Amendment.

Rather, it is limited by the rights there are to be secured, which is why it is crucial that courts understand the underlying theory of rights when they adjudicate under the Fourteenth Amendment.
