Osborn vs. The Bank of the United States
your money is safe with me Thanks Bank of the United States
We want our money and we need it now !
Did the federal circuit court's assertion of jurisdiction over the case, which involved an action commenced against the state of Ohio, violate the Eleventh Amendment?
The 11th Amendment: The Judicial power of the United States shall not be construed to extend to any suit in law or equity, commenced or prosecuted against one of the United States by Citizens of another State, or by Citizens or Subjects of any Foreign State. (Basically the state cannot be sued in the federal court or owe money to a specific company.) Sovereign Immunity
Well, since I directly represent my state, then clearly the 11th amendment shall apply to me, declaring me immune to federal suits. This is perfect, I can keep my money!

Case Closed You may be a state representative but you cannot part with the state in court. You can and will be sued. Repay the money, even the amount you spent already.
