“It was ruled that an individual cannot sue on behalf of a State.”
I’m not a lawyer, but the ruling also seemed to imply that no citizen has standing to sue the state to enforce properly enacted laws.
I think the ruling affirms something that the U.S. Supreme Court has said for a long time: that no citizen has standing to sue a state in Federal court to enforce properly enacted state laws.
This, by the way, was exactly why the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear the case involving the pre-election nonsense in New Jersey back in the 2002 U.S. Senate election when Robert Torricelli was replaced on the ballot after the ballot deadline.
I was just repeating what Levin and Krauthammer had said.
