The Missouri Compromise was nullified by the new Compromise of 1850 - caused by the admission of California, which extended a long way on either side of the Missouri line, and rendered it obsolete.

The Dred Scott Case completely nullified the Missouri Compromise. It ruled that slavery was protected under the 5th Amendment because slaves were property. The verdict was that slavery could not be outlawed in any territory.

The Kansas-Nebraska Act nullified the Missouri Compromise of 1850. The new act left the decision on whether a state would be a free state or a slave state to the voters of the territory near to being a new US state. The one part of the Missouri Compromise that was not effected by the Kansas-Nebraska Act was the Fugitive Slave law.

The Dred Scott decision repealed the Missouri Compromise because it was said to deny a man's right to property and that it is unconstitutional. The decision legalized slavery everywhere, and the Missouri Compromise said that there equal free states and slave states, and so now all states are slave states.
