OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma won its battle with Texas over water rights but has two fights pending with a pair of Oklahoma-based Native American tribes.
A lawsuit filed by the Choctaw and Chickasaw nations and a related lawsuit filed by the state have been on hold for more than a year. Officials hoped the two sides could settle their differences through negotiation. While they continue to talk, no one knows when - or if - a resolution will be reached.
An attorney for the tribes, Michael Burrage, says he believes the process is working. A spokeswoman for Attorney General Scott Pruitt says he remains committed to mediation. Negotiations resume on July 18.
Last month, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled for Oklahoma in a Texas water district's lawsuit.
