Best Answer

A private individual cannot sue an entire state, that would result in the whole population of said state being named as defendants. Certain governmental units of states however, do not have immunity under the 11th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and therefore can be sued. A suit of such type has to be filed in the federal court of jurisdiction.
