Product Description

This Cases and Materials on Civil Procedure includes new landmark cases and reflects recent changes in procedural rules and practice. While essentially a traditional casebook organized along the lines of the events in a lawsuit, this Cases and Materials on Civil Procedure retains the unique features that have made prior editions a success, including:

"Improving the System" sections challenging students to think more deeply about cutting-edge issues;
Litigation documents showing actual litigation sequences, including the motion for summary judgment in Jones v. Clinton and excerpts from the jury selection, the court's charge, and the final arguments in Pennzoil Co. v. Texaco, Inc.;
"How to Read This Case" notes precede particularly difficult cases;
Traditional federal materials are supplemented with an introduction to differing practices of three benchmark states: California, New York, and Texas;
A chapter devoted to Alternative Dispute Resolution methods;
A new section on personal jurisdiction by electronic contacts covering the Internet and e-commerce;
Revised disclosure and discovery coverage to reflect up-to-date rules;
New service of process materials that reflect the decisional effects of rules changes;
Reorganized coverage of Rule 11 and sanctions to facilitate comparison of previous practice to the effects of current rules;
