The court's reversal is viewed as a victory for the Trump administration.
With U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy set to retire next month, President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he plans to promptly start the process of selecting a successor for the high court's bench.
Several former law clerks have said that Kennedy, a nominee of President Ronald Reagan, preferred to be replaced by a Republican.
While Kennedy's replacement will not change the numerical ideological balance on the court, Trump could appoint a justice who would be more staunchly conservative than Kennedy and less likely to occasionally side with the court's liberal wing.

Which countries are on the list?
Following Trump's announcement of his "Muslim ban" a year ago, the country witnessed a wave of Islamophobia.
"I never thought I'd say this, but, you're only 81!"
Tens of thousands of legal visas were canceled and protesters took to the streets saying the president was banning Muslims in violation of the constitution's religious freedom protections.
"Not since key decisions on slavery, segregation in schools, and Japanese American incarceration have we seen a decision that so clearly fails to protect those most vulnerable to government-led discrimination", added Farhana Khera, executive director of the group Muslim Advocates. "Think about it. The court that just this week crippled unions, upheld Trump's Muslim ban, and race-based gerrymandering, might turn conservative!"
Soon after he was sworn into office in 2017, Trump nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch to succeed the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who had died a year earlier.
