    Program Overview:
    In PPL Montana v. Montana (Docket No. 10-218), the United States Supreme Court clarified in several important respects the parameters of the doctrine of navigability for purposes of determining state title to riverbeds, a matter governed by federal law and determined, under the equal footing doctrine, as of the date of statehood. Issues addressed by the Supreme Court included the distinction between "navigability" for purposes of title from "navigability" in a regulatory context; the importance of analyzing the navigability of a river on a segment-by-segment approach; and whether evidence of modern day usage of a river may be relied upon in determining navigability at the time of statehood. The Supreme Court ruled that the Montana Supreme Court erred in its application of these rules, and remanded the matter back to the Montana courts for further proceedings. The Supreme Court also noted that the public trust doctrine, a matter of state law, was not undermined by its ruling regarding title to the riverbeds. Panelists will include several counsel involved in the case and nationally acclaimed water law scholar Dan Tarlock.
