CIVIL PROCEDURE-ABATEMENT-STATUS OF SUIT NOMINALLY AGAINST GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL WHEN OFFICIAL LEAVES OFFICE
Often an action brought against an official of the sovereign is actually against the sovereign itself, nominally represented by the official. The status of such a suit when the official leaves office is even today not satisfactorily settled. The so-called representative suit, while at one time serving a purpose, has always been somewhat anomalous and today is antiquated and useless.
