This concise hornbook covers the main points of civil procedure that any student needs to understand, and covers them briefly but thoroughly enough to be understandable. It focuses on the material covered in a typical law school course on civil procedure, tied to no one casebook. It breaks down the subject of civil procedure along the standard lines: a brief orientation; then a lengthier overview of the stages of litigation, followed by a close inspection of the major procedural problems (governing law, authority to adjudicate, former adjudication, and complex litigation); and finally some reflections in conclusion. It discusses specific problems and illustrations, with the aid of generously sprinkled diagrams and special text boxes. Special attention was given to fitting the civil procedure course's main points together to form the big picture, with each topic ending in a section on the big idea (separation of powers, vertical federalism, horizontal federalism, full faith and credit, or procedural due process) that the student is supposed to take from the topic.
This full-color book of federal civil procedure logic maps, which supports any classroom text, is designed to provide visual aids, including graphic and color cues, in the understanding and application of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and related federal procedural concepts. Visual references show the interplay among rules and subparts of rules, the U.S. Constitution, and core provisions of the United States Code. In many maps, applicable caselaw is also highlighted and summarized. In addition to more than 120 full-color maps, the book also contains an appendix which includes the complete Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and selected sections of the United States Code (all current as of Summer 2012, including the integrated provisions of the Federal Courts Jurisdiction and Venue Clarification Act, which took effect in early 2012). The visual format provides a comprehensive overview, allowing students to review the subject quickly prior to final exams.
This outline summarizes the black-letter rules of civil procedure. It covers general considerations, litigating step-by-step, authority to adjudicate, complex litigation, governing law, and former adjudication. It allows students to understand how their course materials fit together, doing so by conveying a conception of civil procedure-the relationships among the ideas and the law that constitute the subject. This book is carefully designed and written as a study aid in preparing for classes and as a review aid in studying for examinations, containing all the many special features that characterize the highly successful Black Letter Series of books, such as a glossary and sample examination questions and answers.

The revised third edition includes all amendments to the jurisdiction, venue, and removal statutes in the Federal Courts Jurisdiction and Venue Clarification Act of 2011, effective January 6, 2012. This third edition deletes Fed. R. Civ. P. 84 (Forms), as well as the Appendix of Forms, which were abrogated in December 2015. The revised text eliminates the forms in the previous edition.This third edition includes recent Supreme Court decisions, including Walden v. Fiore (2014)(intentional torts and personal jurisdiction); Daimler AG v. Bauman (2014)(personal jurisdiction); Atlantic Marine Construction Co. v. U.S. Dist. Ct.

Moving beyond the outline format used by most students, this book uses a checklist format to lead students through the questions they need to ask and answer to fully analyze the legal questions they are trying to resolve. It assembles the different issues, presenting a clear guide to procedural analysis that students can draw upon when writing their exams. Other study aids provide sample problems, but this book offers a systematic approach to problem solving.

The third edition of this casebook reflects the many developments that have occurred in aggregate litigation since 2013 while continuing to treat the subject as a coherent whole. This edition includes a short, systematic introduction to the range of different aggregation techniques and then pays detailed attention to class actions, multidistrict litigation (MDL), parens-patriae suits, bankruptcy, and arbitration. In particular, this edition features a new chapter devoted to MDL, in which topics range from selecting the transferee court, choosing what law should apply, and exploring the judicial role in examining MDL's effect on settlement and leadership selection. As before, the casebook does more than just present the law-it considers multiple perspectives on policy, litigation strategy, judicial practice, financial considerations, and empirical findings. The book fills three gaps in the market for teaching materials on the U.S. civil justice system. First, it treats aggregate litigation as a cohesive field of law that encompasses all devices for processing claims en masse. Second, the book confronts forthrightly the reality of our civil justice system as one geared toward settlement, not trial. From this vantage point, the casebook sees the processes for aggregate litigation as vehicles through which to achieve comprehensive, or broadly encompassing, resolution of related civil claims. Third, the book frames the legitimacy of preclusion in aggregate litigation by drawing, among other things, on conceptions of legitimacy in other settings, such as private contract and public legislation. In so doing, the casebook encourages students to see cross-cutting connections with their other courses on such topics as contracts, corporations, and administrative law.
Fourteen law school professors collaborated to write Civil Procedure Stories, which provides deeper understanding of the great civil procedure cases. Each professor wrote a short chapter on one of the cases, retelling the case in his or her own voice and by his or her own method. Each chapter includes separate sections on: Social and legal background of the case Factual background of the case Lower court proceedings in the case Final appellate disposition, including issues, decisions, reasons, and separate opinions Factual postscript to the case Immediate impact of the case on the development of the law (why the case is famous and when it became so) Continuing importance of the case today (why it is still a leading case)
This casebook is the concise, and very modern, version of a respected classic of civil procedure casebooks. The key to its brevity is its efficient and systematic step-by-step survey of the subject in Part One, which provides a tight 270-page comprehensive treatment of current civil procedure. The survey suffices to give the students a complete and solid grounding in civil procedure by means of the cases, commentaries, text, and questions that progress from pretrial and settlement to trial, judgment, appeal, jurisdiction, and complex litigation. This brief yet thorough coverage leaves time for in-depth treatment of a few selected problem areas regarding the system's fundamental structure in Part Two on governing law, Part Three on authority to adjudicate, and Part Four on res judicata. The thirteenth edition has been thoroughly updated. It newly features most prominently a reordering of Part Three and a reworking of the rapidly changing subject of general and specific personal jurisdiction. Finally, it brings a proven Stories approach to the presentation of the major cases' backgrounds.
