Basic Civil Procedure, Second Revised Edition
Effective litigation today requires an understanding of client and attorney responsibilities with regard to Electronically Stored Information (ESI), the jurisdiction of state and federal courts, choice of law issues, the extent of the attorney-client privilege, and issues of claim preclusion and issue preclusion. In addition, it is important to be familiar with joinder of parties, availability of class actions, multi-district litigation, and issues of sovereign immunity and jurisdiction over foreign corporations.
This collection of recent, interesting cases brings all of these issues to life, and helps the reader to understand the context in which the rules of civil procedure are formulated and applied – both by the courts and by various legislative bodies. Good stories make the rules memorable and fascinating. Each case, of course, involves a major event in someone's life. Readers will come to appreciate how often cases are won or lost because of the rules of civil procedure. The rules are at the heart of all civil litigation.
