Can a state be sued?

It depends. The 11th amendment grants states sovereign immunity from lawsuits. The state can waive its right to be sued by its own citizens, but it doesn't have to. The only way a state can be sued is if it is sued by another state. If two states sue each other, then the US Supreme Court has original jurisdiction. Downside is, you cannot sue your own state. BUT, municipalities and local governments do not have sovereign immunity, so you can sue your city government.
