    The statement is false.

    Explanation:

    According to 28 U. S. Code § 1251. Original jurisdiction, "The Supreme Court shall have original and exclusive jurisdiction of all controversies between two or more States."

    As this issue involves a territorial dispute around the Delaware River which affects both of the states of Delaware and New Jersey, only the U. S. Supreme Court is the competent legal forum to adjudicate the matter. This means that this must be filed, and can only be filed with the United States Supreme Court.
