This book assembles a set of cases, constitutional provisions, statutes, and rules that embody a core canon of decisional law in civil procedure. This text focuses on a core canon and sets forth the leading cases in civil procedure, in greater length and detail than in other civil procedure casebooks on the market.
The focus of this text is to cover fewer cases, but in greater depth. In addition, this book includes concurring and dissenting opinions that frequently have been eliminated from other texts. The book is designed based on a fourteen-week curriculum, with fourteen chapters that provide easy and simple guidance for working through the course. Each week addresses a topic and assembles the core cases, statutes, or rules that students and the professor reasonably may study in four hours of class time. In addition to the book's fourteen-week structure, the text also offers materials for alternative weeks that may be substituted for topics covered in the main text.
