February 7, 1795 11th Amendment to the US Constitution was ratified
The Eleventh Amendment was adopted to overrule the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Chisholm v. Georgia (1793).

Thus, the Eleventh Amendment established that federal courts do not have the authority to hear cases brought by private citizens against states.
