Selected Cases on Water Rights and Irrigation Law in California and Western States
The purpose in selecting these cases has been to furnish as complete a study as possible of the Law of Water Rights. Because of lack of space where the California and Colorado doctrines conﬂict upon any principle, no attempt has been made to use cases establishing the Colorado doctrine. In arranging the cases it has been the aim to place them in such order as to follow the growth and development of one principle from another. Such an arrangement should aid the student to more readily understand the underlying reasons and sound logic upon which this branch of our juris prudence has been built.
