Hey Milla!

The "Nullification Theory"

This is a theory promoted by John C. Calhoun, a pro-slavery from the South (note: remember in "la Amistad", he did a speech warning the Northern States that the Southern States as well are powerful and that Slavery can divide the Union...)

It means that States have the power to declare a federal law no endowed by the State government.
for example, South Carolina could say: Ok, we don't agree with the Federal Law, let's ignore it. xD

This theory is a precursor of the secession, by accepting the idea that States can declare a federal law no endowed (they won't use it)

I hope it answered your question (in the table Ms Garrett gave us, it corresponds to the States' rights of John C. Calhoun)
