Eo nomine

Eo nomine

[ey-oh noh-mi-ne; Eng. ee-oh nom-i-nee]
Eo nomine is a latin legal term meaning "by that name." The United States Supreme Court uses it in the context of sovereign immunity. In Alden v. Maine Justice Souter, for the dissent, wrote that according to natural law a sovereign, like a state, could not be sued in its own court based on a right it created, "A state would be subject to a suit eo nominein its own courts on a federal claim."
