State workers who are denied delinquent ill leave compulsory by sovereign law can't sue a states, a Supreme Court pronounced in a feat for states’ rights that some magnanimous advocates saw as a bad feeling for President Obama’s medical law.
It pronounced lawsuits by state employees available underneath a law would violate a inherent order that a “states, as sovereigns, are defence from suits for damages.” Use of this rule, that was devised by a Rehnquist justice in a mid-1990s, had receded in new years. It reappears in a opinion by Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, only days before a justice hears a 26-state plea to Obama’s medical law. – Los Angeles Times
