Description: A narrative overview opens Civil Procedure: Cases and Problemswith a hypothetical case that illustrates each of the major topics inthe course. Subsequent chapters are similarly arranged—from finding acourt that can obtain jurisdiction over the defendants, to the bindingeffect of a final judgment. Accessible―not simplified―introductionsbegin each chapter. Every section starts with relatively easy,rules-based material, and then moves on to more complex and subtleissues. Flexible organization allows chapters to be taught out ofsequence. More than 230 up-to-date problems appear both within eachsection and as more comprehensive problems at the end of each chapter.Lightly edited cases develop first-year students’ skills in doctrinalanalysis. Here is an integrated approach to covering Alternative DisputeResolution (ADR) and Rule 11 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure(FRCP). A comprehensive Teacher’s Manual explains the authors’ approachto the material, provides analysis of cases, gives detailed answers tothe questions posed in the notes and to all of the problems, offersextra guidance for particularly difficult topics, includes diagrams, andsuggests sample syllabi that vary with the number of units offered forthe course.The Fourth Editionexamines all of the important new Supreme Court decisions dealing withCivil Procedure from the October 2008, 2009, and 2010 terms, includingcases on personal jurisdiction, Article III jurisdiction, and classactions. A complete overhaul and reorganization of the pleadings coveragereflects major developments generated by Bell Atlantic v. Twombly andAshcroft v. Iqbal. Erie materials now include an optional “short version”that is teachable in approximately two class hours or less. Detailedcoverage of e-discovery has been added to the chapter on discovery. Arevised class action chapter includes thorough coverage of significantjudicial opinions issued from the Supreme Court and lower federal courts.Detailed coverage of all amendments to the judicial code as enacted by theFederal Courts Jurisdiction and Venue Clarification Act of 2011(jurisdiction, removal, venue, and transfer) are provided. The problemshave been updated and revised for currency and teaching effectiveness;specifically, more factual details and structure have been added to theproblems to make them even more effective teaching tools. The FourthEdition is available in an e-version as well as print.Hallmark features:• Narrative overview of civil procedure in first chapter, including ahypothetical caseo illustrates each of the major topics in the courseo arranged in the same order as the subsequent chapterso from finding a court that can obtain jurisdiction to the bindingeffect of a final judgment• Section structureo begins with accessible, rules-based materialo advances to complex and subtle issues• Accessible but not overly simplified introductions for each chapterand section• Flexible organization allows chapters to be taught out of sequence• More than 230 up-to-date problemso appear throughout each section of a chapter
