Edition: 2nd ed., 2011
Aimed at students in advanced courses, Pfander's Concise Hornbook on Principles of Federal Jurisdiction provides an up-to-date explanation of the leading principles of federal jurisdiction. Coverage includes such landmarks of jurisdictional law as Marbury v. Madison, Erie R. Co. v. Tompkins, and Ex parte Young, and the rules that govern original and appellate jurisdiction, justiciability and abstention, federal habeas corpus for both state and federal prisoners, and sovereign immunity and government accountability. The book discusses the enemy combatant cases and recent Supreme Court decisions on such diverse issues as the AEDPA, federal ingredient jurisdiction, complete preemption removal, and supplemental jurisdiction. In addition to its discussion of leading principles, Pfander's Concise Hornbook on Principles of Federal Jurisdiction provides a sense of the argumentative possibilities available to lawyers and jurists working within the federal courts’ tradition.
