Chisholm v. Georgia (1793) was a Supreme Court case which examined the issue of state and local sovereignty. It is considered by many to be the first important Supreme Court case.[1]

In the court's ruling, it stated: The United States are sovereign as to all the powers of Government actually surrendered: each State in the Union is sovereign as to all the powers reserved.
