The law of civil procedure: cases and materials
Thomson/West, Mar 30, 2006 - Law - 915 pages
In this edition, the authors have integrated all significant developments that have occurred since the publication of the initial edition of this casebook in January, 2002. Additionally, the decision in Franchise Tax Board v. Construction Laborers which appeared in the first edition, has been replaced with a shorter, and more teachable case addressing the federal courts' federal question jurisdiction. Since its publication, the first edition of the casebook has been adopted by teachers at such schools as George Washington University, Hamline, Iowa, Michigan State, University of Missouri (KC), Nova, Pittsburgh, Richmond, St. Louis, Texas Wesleyan, Tulane, Tulsa, and the University of Virginia.
