That was the margin by which the SCOTUS upheld the Solomon Amendment. You can read the opinion here.

The guys at Power Line have been covering the story since the beginning, and they offer more commentary now as the case ends.

This decision does not surprise me in the least. Besides the appeal from common sense, this case is governed by a number of controlling cases that allow the federal governemnt to condition the money it grants states and their institutions. But I'll leave the technical explanations to those who are more qualified than myself.
