Historically the first effort to undue an unconstitutional law was in response to the Alien and Sedition Act of 1798 which was signed into law by John Adams who had learned that citizens were criticizing him when he was President.
Thomas Jefferson and James Madison wrote the Kentucky Resolves and the Virginia Resolves which are spelled out on Wikipedia. Essentially they hold that the states could interpose themselves between the central government and the citizens by declaring the law to be unconstitutional. This was also done regarding the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 and on other occasions.
As we speak thirty some odd states are working to enact legislation to prevent citizens from being forced to purchase health insurance which would render the Patient Protection and Affordability Act from being viable and might lead to its repeal.
