Identifier: Subseries 2.2

Scope and Contents

From the Sub-Series:

This subseries contains documents accumulated by Richardson while serving as an expert witness for the Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District (CNPPID) in the case Keystone Ranch v. CNPPID and NPPD v. Keith County (Case No. 6593). Eugene Feltz, owner of Keystone Ranch near Ogallala, Nebraska, sued CNPPID claiming water released from the dam had lowered the North Platte River bed and led to the death of cottonwood trees on his accretion land. Feltz won the case; CNPPID appealed. Richardson's files include notes, correspondence, depositions, and legal opinions. Richardson's arrangement was retained as found.
