Alden v. Maine, 527 U.S. 706, 757, 119 S.Ct. 2240, 2268 (1999), for the proposition that state officials may be held personally liable for damages based upon official actions only where they were sufficiently involved. In Alden, the Supreme Court held:
Even a suit for money damages may be prosecuted against a state officer in his individual capacity for unconstitutional or wrongful conduct fairly attributable to the officer himself, so long as the relief is sought not from the state treasury but from the officer personally.
