"The court is not saying that the 9th amendments does not protect unenumerated rights held by the people, it's saying that it checked the SC rulings and couldn't find one that enumerated the rights to be protected under the 9th. It probably found several where the SC said the 9th protects rights not otherwise named in the Constitution."
A large part of the constitutional problems we face can be attributed to the way lawyers/judges misuse the english language, imo.
-- And I have no doubt that much of this misuse is deliberate.

That, or there are judges that have little idea of what the law says or means, maybe like those appointed or elected that were successful divorce lawyers.
