Clouse ex. rel. Clouse v. State

In Clouse ex. rel. Clouse v. State, 199 Ariz. 196, 16 P.3d 757 (2001), the Arizona Supreme Court did not apply the anti-abrogation clause. Id. at 198-99, PP 10-11, 16 P.3d at 759-60. Instead, the supreme court addressed whether the immunity clause found in Article 4, Section 18, of the Arizona Constitution "permits the legislature to define those instances in which governmental immunity prevents or limits actions against the state." Id. at 202, P 20, 16 P.3d at 763. The supreme court concluded that the immunity clause provided the legislature with that authority. Id. at 203, P 24, 16 P.3d at 764.
