The revised ninth edition of this popular casebook fully reflects the restyled Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and covers important new Supreme Court cases on pleading, federal jurisdiction, summary judgment, and due process. The revised edition integrates and does not simply add recent decisions, including Bell Atlantic, Flowers, and Grable. The cases are carefully edited and followed by notes and questions. This revised edition also treats the latest electronic discovery amendments and addresses significant developments in class-action practice. As has been the practice with all of the past editions, the casebook offers a substantial emphasis on the operation of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, but also draws comparisons with state and international practice. Because courses in civil procedure vary greatly as to the hours allotted, we have designed and revised this casebook for maximum flexibility in terms of an individual classroom's coverage, depth, sensibility, and emphasis. The casebook is accompanied by an up-to-date Supplement that includes not only the federal statutes and rules governing procedure, but also comparative state provisions. A number of other materials, such as Advisory Committee notes, proposed rule alternatives, and local court rules, also are included. The Supplement contains, as well, a litigation time chart and an illustrative problem, showing how a case develops in practice and samples of the documents that actually might have formed a portion of the record.
