Osborn v. Bank of the United States

Osborn v. Bank of the United States In 1824 the Supreme Court decided whether Ohio’s state auditor could be sued for damages stemming from his seizure, under the authority of a state law, of funds belonging to the second bank of the United States; it ruled (with one dissent) that the Eleventh Amendment did not exempt states from being sued by US officials in federal court to obtain redress for a state officer’s enforcement of an unconstitutional statute.
