U.S. Supreme Court

Maryland v. West Virginia, 217 U.S. 577 (1910)

Maryland v. West Virginia,

No. 1, Original

Forms of decree and brief submitted April 20, 1910

Decree settled May 31, 1910

217 U.S. 577


Length of time that raises a right by prescription in private parties, likewise raises such a presumption in favor of states.

Consistently with the continued previous exercise of political jurisdiction by the respective states, Maryland has a uniform southern boundary along Virginia and West Virginia at low water mark on the south bank of the Potomac River to the intersection of the north and south line between Maryland and West Virginia.

The division of costs between states in a boundary dispute is one governmental in character in which each party has not a litigious, but a real, interest for the promotion of the peace and good of the communities, and all expenses including those connected with making the surveys should be borne in common and included in the costs equally divided between the states.

Decree in 217 U. S. 217 U.S. 1 settled.

The facts involved in this case are stated in the opinion of the Court delivered February 21, 1909, ante, p. 217 U. S. 1; the particular facts involved in the settlement of the decree are stated in the opinion following.
