About the Author:

Arthur L. Littleworth and Eric L. Garner, partners in the California law firm of Best, Best & Krieger, specialize in water and natural resources law, representing public and private clients before administrative agencies, the California legislature, and the courts. They have extensive experience advising local agencies and addressing water matters on behalf of their clients in the planning and negotiating stages of developing plans and projects.

Arthur L. Littleworth is highly regarded as an expert in California and national water issues, has long been listed in the Best Lawyers in America, and in 2007 was named as one of the Top 100 lawyers in California. He was appointed by the United States Supreme Court as a Special Master to hear the case between the States of Kansas and Colorado involving rights to the Arkansas River, with a complicated trial that lasted well over a decade. In 1977-78 he served on the Governor's Commission to Review California Water Rights Law. He has tried a number of landmark water cases, including the representation of the State Water Contractors in the early Bay-Delta hearings, litigating the rights of the East Bay Municipal Utility District to obtain a supplemental water supply from the American and Sacramento Rivers, and acting as one of the lead counsel in stream system adjudications involving thousands of parties.

Eric L. Garner is a partner in the Environmental and Natural Resources Practice Group of Best, Best & Krieger. In November 2005, he became the managing partner of BBK. Mr. Garner has practiced water law for his entire legal career, representing clients in numerous surface and groundwater disputes in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, Putah Creek, and American, Sacramento, and San Gabriel Rivers, as well as in the Santa Maria, Mojave, Antelope Valley, Chino, and Monterey groundwater basins. He has also worked overseas, writing water laws for the governments of South Africa, Trinidad, and Pakistan. Mr. Garner has been an adjunct professor teaching water law at the University of Southern California. In 2006 he received a California Lawyer of the Year award for his work on the Santa Maria adjudication.
