Before KUNZIG, Judge, U.S. Court of Claims, CAMPBELL and BOWNES, Circuit Judges.

BOWNES, Circuit Judge.

This 1983 civil rights action is based on the failure of defendants-appellees to honor the low bid of plaintiffs-appellants and purchase a quantity of text books from them. The case was dismissed by the district court for failure to state a claim upon which relief could be granted. Fed.R.Civ.P. 12(b)(6). The central issue is whether the suit is barred by the eleventh amendment to the Constitution of the United States.1
