United States v. District Ct. for Water Div. No. 5, 401 U.S. 527 (1971)

United States v. District Court in and for Water Div. No. 5

No. 812

Argued March 2, 1971

Decided March 24, 1971

401 U.S. 527

Syllabus

In this companion case to U.S. v. District Court for Eagle County, ante, p. 401 U. S. 520, the United States had been served with notice pursuant to 43 U.S.C. § 666 of a proceeding in state court for the adjudication of water rights affecting areas of the State in the drainage basins of the Colorado River system. In addition to its claim that § 666 does not apply to state court suits against the Government for adjudication of its reserved water rights, the Government contended that the state statutory proceedings involved in this case, which contemplated monthly proceedings before a water referee on water rights applications filed within a particular month, do not constitute general adjudications of water rights under § 666 because all the water users and all water rights on a stream system are not implicated in the referee's determinations. The Government's contentions were rejected by the state courts.

Held:

1. The state court has jurisdiction to adjudicate the reserved water rights of the United States. Eagle County, supra. P. 401 U. S. 529.

2. The state statutory proceedings are within the scope of § 666, and reach all claims in their totality, although the adjudication is made on a monthly basis. Pp. 401 U. S. 529-530.

Affirmed.

MR. JUSTICE DOUGLAS delivered the opinion for a unanimous Court. MR. JUSTICE HARLAN, though joining in the opinion, filed a concurring statement, post, p. 401 U. S. 530. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
