Palmer v. Ohio
Motion to affirm submitted October 28, 1918
Decided November 18, 1918
248 U.S. 32
The right of individuals to sue a state depends entirely on the consent of that state.
Whether an amendment of the Ohio Constitution (Art. I, § 16, as amended 1912) gives such consent directly or requires legislation to put it into effect held a question of local law in no sense involving rights under the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of individuals suing the state for damage to property.
The Fifth Amendment relates to federal action only.
Upon error to a state court, this Court, finding no substantial federal question, will dismiss sua sponte, denying a motion to affirm.
Writ of error or to review 96 Ohio St. 513 dismissed.
The case is stated in the opinion.
