Select a format
In this analysis of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Tarrant Regional Water District v. Herrmann, Christine A. Klein discusses practical lessons of the Court's decision, including lessons for negotiating and drafting interstate water compacts, and suggests that Tarrant's legacy will be more practical than legal but that it might hold valuable clues as to the future of the Court's constitutional treatment of state water regulation.
