Vidler Water Resources, Inc. (“Vidler”) (Nasdaq: VWTR) announced today that on April 19, 2022, Clark County District Judge Bita Yeager issued her Decision in the Eighth Judicial District Court Consolidated Case No. A-20-816761-C which granted the petition for judicial review of the Nevada State Engineer’s Order 1309 filed by Petitioners, Lincoln County Water District and Vidler’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Vidler Water Company, Inc. The Court also granted similar petitions by Coyote Springs Investments, LLC as well as other Petitioners impacted by the State Engineer’s actions.
The Court ordered that State Engineer’s Order 1309 be vacated in its entirety because the Nevada State Engineer exceeded his statutory authority in creating a “Superbasin” out of multiple distinct and already established hydrographic basins.
