Stewart, the Court will hear argument regarding whether the Eleventh Amendment prohibits an independent state agency from suing state officials in federal court for an injunction to remedy a violation of federal law.  Steven D. Schwinn, an associate professor of law at the John Marshall Law School and a co-editor of the Constitutional Law Prof Blog, previews the case for the American Bar Association’s PREVIEW of U.S. Supreme Court Cases; the ABA has generously agreed to share some of its previews "“ which are authored by practitioners and scholars in the field "“ with SCOTUSblog.  You can read Professor Schwinn’s preview here; PREVIEW's website is here.
