Eleventh Amendment

Lawsuits against states
The Judicial power of the United States shall not be construed to extend to any suit in law or equity, commenced or prosecuted against one of the United States by Citizens of another State, or by Citizens or Subjects of any Foreign State.

What does this mean??

This helps protect each individual state from being sued in a federal court by someone of another state or country. Reversed Chisholm v. Georgia

Why this video??

Even though this is an extremely boring movie this man does explain the eleventh amendment pretty well.
