Nevada Supreme Court to hear the case of Nevada State Engineer v. Happy Creek
The Nevada Supreme Court will hear the case of Nevada State Engineer v. Happy Creek Inc. at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 5.
The Nevada State Engineer appealed and argues that equitable relief granted by the district court to Happy Creek was not warranted and that the district court erred by taking new evidence that was not in the record before the state engineer.
The original case revolved around Happy Creek's missed deadline to file proof of beneficial use or an extension of time for several water permits due to a mistake by water rights professional.
