JUDICIAL:

Allen v. State, 2019 CO 6, 433 P.3d 581
This case concerns whether a water court has jurisdiction to consider a claim for inverse condemnation alleging a judicial taking of shares in a mutual ditch company. The water court dismissed plaintiff-appellant Sam Allen’s inverse condemnation claim, concluding that his claim was “grounded in ownership and the conveyance of that ownership, not use,” and therefore the claim was not a water matter within the exclusive jurisdiction of the water court. We agree and thus affirm the water court’s dismissal order.
The Court concludes that Allen’s complaint raised only questions about the ownership of his interest in the ditch company shares and not questions about the use of water rights, court concludes that this case does not involve a “water matter” within the water court’s jurisdiction. The Court therefore affirm the water court’s judgment dismissing Allen’s complaint for lack of subject matter jurisdiction.
