Synopsis: Examines the role of the U.S. Supreme Court in settling disputes between states.
From the Back Cover:
With respect to "controversies between two or more states," the U.S. Constitution grants original jurisdiction to the U.S. Supreme Court, and in 1789 Congress made exclusive the Court s jurisdiction over interstate disputes. In this book, Joseph F. Zimmerman examines the role of the Supreme Court in settling disputes between states, the criteria developed by the Court to determine whether its original jurisdiction should be invoked, and the function of special masters, who, as adjuncts to the Court, facilitate negotiated settlements or provide the factual information needed by the Court to render sound decisions. Zimmerman analyzes a wide range of specific disputes, from boundary lines to financial matters to water allocation, diversion, and pollution. To alleviate the Court s exceptionally heavy and critically important appellate workload, the author proposes alternative mechanisms for resolving controversies between sister states, including interstate boundary compacts, interstate regulatory compacts, and several congressional initiatives.
"Zimmerman has done a masterful job of identifying and elaborating upon those interstate disputes that have been most commonly adjudicated by the U.S. Supreme Court, and he also takes note of the rather unique interstate disputes that have been settled by the Court, including matters involving the bonds of one state held by another state, the pre Civil War debt of Virginia, sale of convict-made articles, state quarantines, and the electoral college voting system. He presents a convincing case for the states to make a stronger effort to negotiate their differences and resolve their disputes by entering into interstate compacts. The book fills a serious void in the literature on interstate relations." ― Nelson Wikstrom, coauthor of American Intergovernmental Relations: A Fragmented Federal Polity
