     Sovereign immunity confusion at Supreme Court

    Sovereign immunity is an old concept. As pointed out in Bay Mills’s brief, Alexander Hamilton described immunity as “inherent in the nature of sovereignty.” In 1858, the U.S. Supreme Court described sovereign immunity as an “established principle of jurisprudence in all civilized nations.” But Michigan (along with seventeen other states in an amicus brief in support of Michigan) is chafing at the fact that American Indian Nations have sovereign immunity, too.
