Supreme Court says no to Texas, yes to Oklahoma in water case – June 13
WASHINGTON – The Dallas-Fort Worth area lost its attempt to secure Oklahoma water in a unanimous Supreme Court ruling Thursday.

In the ruling written by Justice Sonia Sotomayor, the court said that the Tarrant Regional Water District did not have the right to reach into Oklahoma for water for its growing metropolitan area. While Tarrant argued that its water quota was not being fulfilled based on a 40-year-old report and a four-state water compact, the decision said that the Tarrant district was not entitled to water in other states.
