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.
