Product Description

Christopher Mueller is a highly regarded scholar who has taught procedure for 40 years. His stellar, accessible style is familiar to all who use his Evidence texts. Twenty-First Century Procedure presents doctrines and issues within context to help students understand and discuss cases and problems. Major themes of civil litigation are introduced: the adversary system, use of juries, the federal structure of our judicial system, and the advent of managerial judging. The comprehensive treatment of federalism examines the Erie as well as three other aspects that are critical to understanding – pre-emption, abstention, and anti-suit injunctions. Carefully selected cases include standards, from International Shoe to Twombly to Upjohn, as well as illustrative decisions examining everything from counterclaims to amending pleadings to issue preclusion.

Materials on scope of jury trial entitlement are trimmed, in order to cover juror qualifications, impanelment of juries, and for-cause and peremptory challenges. Motions for new trial and judgment as a matter of law are covered, including additur and remittitur and post-verdict challenges for jury misconduct.

“Down home” state decisions from Vermont, Kansas, New Mexico, and South Dakota show the common issues most often examined in federal decisions. With its contemporary view Twenty-First Century Procedure includes modern cases in areas such as class suits, discovery, and pleadings, as well as discussion of e-discovery and modern pretrial practice.
