Government units tend to have strong protections against suits under various interpretations of sovereign immunity, and the agents of government too. Suits like this can happen, but as a general rule, have difficulty getting any traction. Speaking strictly as a matter of general principle, and not having any “inside” knowledge of these suits, I’d have little hope that these suits could get anywhere, utterly regardless of the merits.

But we shall see. Maybe.

That’s pretty much what I’ve been thinking. Maybe someone like Bricker will come along with a legal opinion.
