The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has endorsed two theories of protecting water rights--takings and contract. These theories are reflected in two recent decisions. In the Casitas case, the Federal Circuit relied on a a takings theory to protect the water rights of the Casitas Municipal Water District. In Stockton East, the court applied a contract theory. Both cases are positive outcomes for water rights holders.
