This article focuses on the views of the U.S. Court of Appeals regarding the District Court's decision of the U.S. related to the lawsuit, "United States of America and Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe of Indians vs. Orr Water Ditch Co.," regarding the rights of Indians related to water use. The city of Fallon and Truckee-Carson Irrigation District appealed against the state engineer's decision of invoking Nev.Rev.State. 533.450(5), which allows a party to obtain an automatic stay of the engineer's ruling, to the Federal District Court. The court held that the controversy over applicability of Nev.Rev.State 533.450(5) was capable of repetition and shows that the appeals should be considered.
