This commentary previews an upcoming Supreme Court case, Kansas v. Nebraska & Colorado. The Supreme Court will have the opportunity to resolve a decades-old conflict over water rights in the Republican River which flows through Colorado, Nebraska, and Kansas. In this case of original jurisdiction, the Court will determine both whether Nebraska violated a 60-year old compact concerning water rights, and what the appropriate remedy should be for that violation.
