Arizona v. New Mexico, 425 U.S. 794 (1976)

Arizona v. New Mexico

No. 70, Orig.

Decided May 24, 1976

425 U.S. 794


Motion by Arizona, purportedly in its proprietary capacity as a consumer of, and as parens patriae for its citizens who consume, electrical energy generated in New Mexico, for leave to file an original complaint in this Court against New Mexico seeking declaratoy and injunctive relief on constitutional grounds against New Mexico's tax on the generation of electricity in that State, is denied. The pending state court action in New Mexico by the Arizona utilities involved in this case raises the same constitutional issues and provides an appropriate forum for litigating such issues.
