8th Circuit

     EMPLOYMENT – The 8th Circuit held that the family-care provisions of the Family and Medical Leave Act abrogate the state’s 11th Amendment immunity, but the self-care provisions do not. A state’s grant to an employee of a substantive right with no mention of whether that right can be enforced against the state in federal court does not effect a waiver of 11th Amendment immunity. See ruling.
