Texas v. New Mexico

485 U. S. 388

March 28, 1988

A year earlier, the Supreme Court had ruled that New Mexico had cheated Texas out of some water, and needed to repay it. Whether this repayment would be through money or specific performance was left undetermined, and the Court said a River Master would be appointed to help settle everything. Now, a year later, a new decree was ready to be entered. This new decree chose specific performance as the remedy required of New Mexico. It also appointed Neil S. Grigg (a water expert) to be River Master, and defined his duties with some detail. Stevens did not participate in the formulation  of this decree.
