The Eleventh Amendment bars a federal court from exercising jurisdiction over a claim against a California superior court, which is an arm of the state government or against the judges of that court, acting in their judicial capacity.  Ex parte Young,  209 U.S. 123 (1908) offers no end around the Eleventh Amendment immunity.  A court cannot be sued in an individual capacity, and the Ex parte Young exception does not allow injunctions against judges acting in their judicial capacity. See Whole Woman’s Health v. Jackson, 595 U.S. 30 (2021).
