Section 1983, the Eleventh Amendment, and General Principles of Tort Immunities and Defenses: Who Is Left to Sue?
Hankins, Thomas E.
UMKC Law Review, 45, 1, 29-55, F 76
The possibilities of successfully suing a state entity have been narrowed by the Eleventh Amendment, the definitional exclusions imposed by the Supreme Court in its interpretations of section 1983's legislative history, and the inapplicability of the doctrine of various liability to section 1983 suits. Such narrowing of the permissable scope of 1983 actions is approaching the pointing of barring them altogether. (Author/LBH)
