    Amendment X

    The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

    Due process clause

    Protect against the government: Almost all individual rights conferred by the Constitution protect only against government action.

    They do not protect a person against acts by other private individuals.

    Actually, it all depends exactly on what law is involved and what is wrong because it could invoke any of your choices or even all of them depending on whos interpreting the law. Nothing in written law is ever clear cut and can easily be misread amillion times by a million readers. Laws are actually guidelines by which a Judge has to decide which law was broke and how so and how to apply the total guidelines of any specific law to each case. Law is never easy

    Thomas has no case. First, inspite of which branch of the business enterprise he grew to become into working in initially, he grew to become into working for a business enterprise that brazenly had a "defense force" branch as you stated. for this reason, he supported the corporate movements. except he had pre-customary no flow clauses in his settlement, the business enterprise could be loose to go him to a clean place, and he's loose to the two settle for that place or terminate his employment. there grew to become into no 1st modification violation, no longer even close.

    It is D if the Court decides it is D. Otherwise "none of the above" for the losing party.

    It could be c, if the issue is a state law that denies due process.
