BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - Attorneys have wrapped up a marathon 25-day trial in which Montana sought to prove neighboring Wyoming took too much water from the Yellowstone River basin. An initial decision is expected in mid-2014 from the U.S. Supreme Court appointee overseeing the dispute. The high court will have the final say. Wyoming says Montana formally requested more water only twice. In both instances, attorneys for Wyoming argue that there was no clear evidence of harm.
