WPLG Attorney Paul Kibel Presents at Tribal Water in the Southwest Conference
On May 21, 2021, Paul Kibel was a presenter at the Tribal Water in the Southwest conference. His presentation was on Lessons for Arizona from California's Agua Caliente Litigation on Tribal Groundwater Rights (attached). Paul's talk considered the broader question of how the federal district court's 2019 holding in the Agua Caliente litigation could affect the standing of Native American tribes to seek quantification of federal reserved water rights, both for groundwater and surface water. The conference was co-chaired by John Bezdek.
