Justice and Efficiency in Mega-Litigation explores the phenomenon of extremely long-running, resource-intensive civil litigation known as 'mega-litigation'. Such litigation challenges the courts to reconcile the objectives of justice and efficiency - for the parties to the case and for the community. Drawing on interviews with judges of the courts of England and Wales, and of Australia, this book shows how judges have responded to these challenges. It situates mega-litigation within broader developments in civil procedure and case management, as well as theoretical debates about the role of courts and the purpose of civil procedure. The book highlights the importance of intensive, creative and flexible case management; focus on the issues in dispute; and, ultimately, each judge's expert intuition.
Die Betreuung als Rechtsinstitut lasst sich als staatlich geordnete Fursorge fur Erwachsene charakterisieren, die im Bereich der eigenstandigen und eigenverantwortlichen Erledigung ihrer Angelegenheiten Defizite aufweisen. Eine Anordnung von Betreuung fuhrt vielfach dazu, dass sich die Komplexitat des Verfahrensrechtsverhaltnisses erhoeht und die Betreuerbestellung die bestehenden prozessualen Handlungsbefugnisse modifiziert. Schwerpunkte der vorliegenden Publikation sind die prozessualen Folgen der Betreuung, die Verortung des Instituts im Verfassungsgefuge, die Auswirkungen der Betreuerbestellung im Kontext unterschiedlicher Prozess- und Verfahrensarten, sowie insbesondere die Rechte und Pflichten des Betreuers in der jeweiligen Verfahrungsordnung.
Andrews on Civil Processes is a fresh and stimulating examination of Civil Justice, embracing court proceedings, mediation, and arbitration. A critical and principled treatment of the subject made possible by extensive knowledge not only in the English methods and techniques but also in foreign civil procedural laws.
Since the original publication of A Practitioner's Guide to Class Actions, the U.S. Supreme Court decided Wal-Mart Corporation v. Dukes--and has continued to decide class action issues each year. Those decisions have had a trickle-down effect on the federal circuit and district courts, as well as the jurisprudence of the many states. As a much-needed current resource for practitioners, this completely updated, comprehensive guide provides in-depth knowledge of the many intricacies of a class action lawsuit along with a valuable, state-by-state analysis of the ways in which the class action rules differ from the Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23. Most chapters have been substantially rewritten due to the massive changes in the class action and multidistrict litigation landscape since 2010. The book's chapters are written by experienced practitioners with established practices in the area of class action law. This edition is now published in two volumes and organized in three sections for ease of reference: Anatomy of a Class Action and Special Issues in Class Actions comprise Volume 1, and the Jurisdictional Survey of Local Requirements Governing Class Actions is featured in Volume 2. Topics covered include: - Precertification- Ethical and practical issues of communications with members of a class- Interlocutory appeals- Settlements- Claims administration- The Class Action Fairness Act- Bankruptcy and class actions- Arbitration- State-by-state survey of requirements governing class actions, and more
This book is designed to be used in conjunction with any of the existing civil procedure casebooks. It includes the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, procedural statutes, state rules of court, and illustrative forms. The cases highlight areas coonly addressed in first-year civil procedure courses, but demonstrate how California procedure differs from its federal counterpart.
Contextualizing Civil Procedure It's the Civil Procedure Professors' classic lament - litigators who are former students are always telling us that NOW they see why civil procedure is so important, and that NOW they understand it. Our challenge is to make the course accessible to our students while they are enrolled, not just after they start practicing. The Patt v. Donner case file is intended to do just that - to help civil procedure students put the course in context as they study, by requiring them to follow, and help draft the pleadings, as a simulated case unfolds from the first day of the semester to the last. On day 1 students watch a ten-minute You Tube (TM) video of an initial client interview. Paula Patt, a newly arrived graduate student at UC Berkeley has been denied an apartment; she suspects it's because she's a single mother. Over the course of the semester students participate in drafting her complaint and seeking a TRO; switch sides to help complete motions to dismiss for failure to state a claim, lack of personal jurisdiction, and lack of subject matter jurisdiction; switch back to amend the complaint and move for discovery sanctions; oppose a motion to intervene, then move for-or oppose-summary judgment, and conclude the term with a settlement negotiation. Each pleading exercise provides the student with a largely completed pleading; all they need to do is draft a few key paragraphs. (We call this the 90% solution.) The exercises can be completed as homework or in class, as solo assignments or in teams, and with feedback from the instructor, teaching assistants, or through peer review.
