State and local legislators and judges are protected by absolute immunity when sued in their individual capacity for damages or injunctive relief. 42 U.S.C. § 1983 was amended in 1996 to provide judicial officers with immunity from injunctive relief. This amendment partially overruled Pulliam v. Allen, 466 U.S. 522 (1984), which provided that judges were [absolutely] immune from suits for damages, but not injunctive relief.
See Sec 309 here.
