The Eleventh Edition of this popular casebook provides a framework for studying both the essential and the cutting-edge issues of civil procedure while incorporating problems that test doctrinal understanding, foster case reading skills, and encourage a sense of litigation strategy. New Supreme Court cases have been integrated that impact personal jurisdiction (McIntyre, Goodyear), subject-matter jurisdiction (Grable, Gunn), pleading (Twombly, Iqbal), joinder (Pimentel), class actions (Dukes), and other important topics, including statutory changes such as the Jurisdiction Clarification Act. The casebook covers all of the major topics that a professor might wish to teach in a first-year course, and can easily be adapted for courses of one- or two-semesters, of different credit hours, and with varied practical or theoretical emphases. A supplement includes all updated Federal Rules, the pleadings in Twombly and Iqbal, a model case file, state materials, and other important teaching tools.
This supplement brings the principal text current with recent developments in the law.
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.
The Compact Twelfth Edition of this very popular casebook is designed for three- or four-credit civil procedure courses. It provides a framework for studying the essential and cutting-edge issues of civil procedure in an accessible but rigorous way. The materials are designed to reinforce doctrinal understanding, to foster case reading skills, to encourage critical thinking and an appreciation of the real-world context of procedural decisions, and to help develop a sense of litigation strategy. The casebook covers all of the major topics that a professor might wish to teach in a one-semester course of varied practical or theoretical emphases. A supplement provides important teaching material, including all updated Federal Rules, federal statutes and constitutional provisions pertinent to procedure, the pleadings in Twombly and Iqbal, state materials, a litigation flow-chart, and other important teaching tools. New materials include: notes on Supreme Court cases on general jurisdiction; materials on virtual contacts in personal jurisdiction; extensive materials the 2015 amendments to discovery practice, including e-discovery; the NFL concussion litigation; and, the emergence of multi-district litigation as a significant method of group litigation.
