In the last fifteen years, the doctrine of sovereign immunity' in Missouri has been abrogated, reestablished, amended and clarified. The recent Missouri Supreme Court decision of Stacy v. Truman Medical Center' falls within the last category. Stacy addressed the undefined term "public entity" as found in the Missouri sovereign immunity statute, particularly as it is applied to a "hybrid entity.". This Note will review the status of the sovereign immunity doctrine and will examine the impact of the Stacy decision.
