This is the 2006 Supplement to Hazard, Tait and Fletcher's Cases and Materials on Pleading and Procedure, State and Federal, Ninth Edition. The authors have thoroughly revised and updated this popular casebook for the Ninth Edition. It features a comprehensive treatment of territorial and subject matter jurisdiction and of the Erie doctrine. The authors have substantially revised and reorganized chapters on pleading, joinder and class actions, discovery, disposition without trial, and trial. The treatment of basic preclusion doctrine has been reorganized, expanded, and clarified. Updates incorporate all the latest changes in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the latest Supreme Court decisions, and the latest statutes, including the Class Action Fairness Act of 2005. The authors have added new sections on procedural due process, litigation costs and access to justice, Internet jurisdiction, electronic discovery, discovery ethics, settlement and court-annexed alternative dispute resolution, and judicial control of damage awards. There is increased attention throughout to comparative law perspectives on American procedure, including differences from, and conflicts with, other legal systems concerning discovery, jurisdiction, and judicial control of litigation. Material has been condensed, rewritten and reoriented to concentrate more on illuminating the principal cases and the major policy issues in the field. Tighter editing of principal cases and elimination of marginal materials have reduced the book?s length by more than 100 pages from the Eighth Edition.

Among the developments considered are the legal changes that have resulted from the demise of the Soviet empire and of ?socialist ? law; the continuing impact that both European Community law and regional human rights law have had on the internal legal systems of European countries; concomitant tensions toward a revised ?common law of Europe? and toward a closer ?convergence? between civil and common law systems; and renewed attention to the methodological problems faced by comparative law, in part because of these other developments.

This casebook is the concise, and very modern, version of a respected classic of civil procedure casebooks. The key to its brevity is its efficient and systematic step-by-step survey of the subject in Part One, which provides a tight 270-page comprehensive treatment of current civil procedure. The survey suffices to give the students a complete and solid grounding in civil procedure by means of the cases, commentaries, text, and questions that progress from pretrial and settlement to trial, judgment, appeal, jurisdiction, and complex litigation. This brief yet thorough coverage leaves time for in-depth treatment of a few selected problem areas regarding the system's fundamental structure in Part Two on governing law, Part Three on authority to adjudicate, and Part Four on res judicata. The twelfth edition has been thoroughly updated. It covers major new cases on general and specific personal jurisdiction and on pleading, and it introduces new materials on the res judicata effect of statute-of-limitations dismissals. It also fully incorporates the new amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which affect such important topics as discovery.
