Navajo Nation v. Department of the Interior, 14-16864

Affirming in part and reversing in part the district court's dismissal of a Navajo Nation complaint and motion for relief challenging the Department of the Interior's published guidelines clarifying how it would make shortage and surplus determinations used in relation to decisions to deliver water from the Colorado River to Western states, affirming the dismissal of claims for lack of Article III standing because it wasn't reasonably probable that the guidelines would threaten the Nation's rights, but remanding breach of trust claims because they were not barred by sovereign immunity.
