App. 1a-36a, simply “more fully sets forth the rationale,” id. at 10a), applied settled law to hold that at 10a), applied settled law to hold that respondents may maintain a valid cause of action for injunctive relief to prevent injury from a state law which is contrary to, and hence preempted under the Supremacy Clause by, a federal statute.
