San Luis & Delta-Mendota Water Auth. v. Bay Institute (9th Cir. - March 2, 2012)

As we progress into the 21st Century, you're going to see more and more opinions like this one.  Long (e.g., 82 single-spaced pages).  Sharply worded.  With a majority and a dissent that adopt very different approaches to the subject matter.

Water.  Jobs versus the environment.  An allegedly zero-sum game.

This is far from the first of these opinions.  It is even further from being the last.
