New Scholarship on Arizona v. California (1963)

Lawrence J. MacDonnell published Arizona v. California Revisited in the Natural Resources Journal last fall. Here is the abstract:

The U.S. Supreme Court’s 1963 decision in Arizona v. California profoundly influenced uses of Colorado River basin water in those two states and throughout the basin. This article takes an in-depth look at this litigation, the decision, and its consequences. It argues the decision should be limited to the issues directly decided as the basin states and Mexico now consider ways to deal with a diminished water supply.
