The SCOTS weren’t/aren’t to "interpret" the constitution. They are to decide if a lower courts ruling fall within the bounds of the Constitution as written. The Constitution and the original Amendments to it are written in pretty simple language. It’s all the “interpretations” that have muddied the waters. If one reads the words of the founders then reads the Constitution simply as written there is no need for interoperation. It says what is says.
