Professor Jesse Richardson Speaks on Webinar Panel for ABA Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources

West Virginia College of Law Professor Jesse Richardson recently spoke on a webinar panel for the ABA Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources. The webinar, held on March 19, 2021, was hosted by the SEER Water Resources Committee. Panelists discussed the effects of recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions on the sufficiency of water supply, water management, and water supply protection. Cases included: County of Maui, Hawaii v. Hawaii Wildlife Fund (federal jurisdiction over groundwater), Texas v. New Mexico and Florida v. Georgia (withdrawals by one state affecting flows relied upon by the neighboring downstream state), and Mississippi v. Tennessee (pumping groundwater from an aquifer serving an adjoining state).
