Sweeping water case argued today before state high court

DENVER (AP) - They're calling it the "water case of the decade," and Colorado's highest court is taking the case more public Thursday with arguments scheduled at the University of Denver.

The seven justices planned to hear oral arguments on what's called the "Farmers Reservoir & Irrigation Company case." It's a thorny lawsuit involving water lawyers from across the state. The cities of Aurora, Broomfield, Denver and Thornton are all listed on the case. Justices could tackle five or six long-standing state water law doctrines.

The Supreme Court usually hears arguments downtown but has moved oral arguments for this case to the University of Denver campus. Law students are invited to watch the arguments.
