The federal courts are courts of limited jurisdiction and cases that do not meet the jurisdictional characteristics are subject to dismissal because of lack of jurisdiction. For example, a citizen of one state cannot sue a state for monetary damages. Federal courts generally do have jurisdiction if the Defendant of a foreign state is sued by the resident of a state for money damages in excess of $75,000.

It is not clear that the Court had jurisdiction.
