Idaho Law Review

Jeff Fereday and Chris Meyer published an article this month in the Idaho Law Review on the subject of federal reserved water rights.  This controversial subject addresses the intersection between federal power and state water law.  The article is Fereday & Meyer, What is the Federal Reserved Water Rights Doctrine, Really?  Answering this Question in Idaho’s Snake River Basin, 52 Idaho L. Rev. 341 (2016).  Both Jeff and Chris have earned “Lawyer of the Year” recognition from Best Lawyers in America for their work in water law.  Chris serves on the Board of the National Judicial Council’s Dividing the Waters Program.  Jeff served as an arbitrator in the Republican River litigation between Kansas, Nebraska, and Colorado in the U.S. Supreme Court.
