Is that why in cases where the Federal Government is the respondent, it's usually the Attorney General or other Cabinet Officer, rather than the United States, but when the Federal Government is the appellant the case is usually the United States v ______?
The short answer is yes, though sovereign immunity of the federal government is not based on the 11th Amendment.
