After nearly a decade of litigation, the U.S. Supreme Court finally decided Florida v. Georgia, Florida's effort to get the Court to equitably apportion (i.e., cap Georgia's consumptive use of) the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint (ACF) River Basin. In a unanimous decision penned by the Supreme Court's newest justice, the Court delivered another blow to Florida, dismissing Florida's challenge. While Georgia might have won this battle, the tristate wars (which include Alabama) are far from over.
