New and relevant cases were added either as principal cases, FLEX Cases (available via the e-book), or in the discussion notes that appear after principal cases. Highlights include: Goodyear Dunlop Tires Operations, S.A. v. Brown, 131 S. Ct. 2846 (2011) and J. McIntyre Machinery, Ltd. v. Nicastro, 131 S. Ct. 2780 (2011) (personal jurisdiction); Gunn v.

Italian Colors Restaurant, 133 S. Ct. 2304 (2013) (class arbitration waivers); Comcast Corp. v. Behrend, 133 S. Ct. 1426 (2013) and Amgen Inc. v. Conn. Ret. Plans & Trust Funds, 133 S.

Supp. 2d 494 (S.D.N.Y. 2013) (spoliation and sanctions); Genesis HealthCare Corp. v. Symczyk, 133 S. Ct. 1523 (2013) (offer of judgment) Additionally, the Fourth Edition fully incorporates recent amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and to Title 28 of the U.S. Code, including the Federal Courts Jurisdiction and Venue Clarification Act of 2011 and the 2013 amendment to Rule 45 (subpoenas). Finally, the Fourth Edition includes references where appropriate to the amendments to the Federal Rules proposed by the Advisory Committee in 2013 pertaining to discovery--the "Duke package" and proposed new Rule 37 addressing preservation and spoliation sanctions--as well as the proposal to abolish the Appendix of Forms. The casebook features a novel visual display and layout that uses text boxes, diagrams, and color/border segregated feature sections for hypotheticals, references to scholarly debates, useful information for students, and thought-provoking questions. A major distinguishing feature of the book is its inclusion of an accompanying electronic version with extensive hyperlinks to Westlaw versions of legal materials, Black's Law Dictionary definitions, supplementary online resources, and more.
