Civil Procedure: A Contemporary Approach
This second edition incorporates the restyled federal rules of civil procedure and the Supreme Court's modification of civil pleading standards in Bell Atlantic v. Twombly. The casebook features a novel visual display and layout that uses text boxes, diagrams, and color/border segregated feature sections for hypotheticals, references to scholarly debates, useful information for students, and thought-provoking questions. A major distinguishing feature of the book is its inclusion of an accompanying electronic version with extensive hyperlinks to Westlaw versions of legal materials, Black's Law Dictionary definitions, supplementary online resources, and more.
