Glannon's reputation is secure as the best-selling author of Civil Procedure E&E, Torts E&E, and The Glannon Guide to Civil Procedure, the first book in the series. His uniquely entertaining style teaches and engages students in all aspects of the first-year Civil Procedure course including the difficult areas of res judicata, collateral estoppel, and personal and subject matter jurisdiction. Accessible introductions and explanations combine with a proven pedagogy in the popular examples-and-explanations format that is effective for learning and applying the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Examples progress gradually from simple to challenging to build students' confidence, and plenty of visual aids (diagrams, charts, and documents) help them remember. The Seventh Edition incorporates changes to the venue and removal statutes and addresses the Supreme Court's recent personal jurisdiction decisions: Goodyear DunlopTires Operations, S.A. v. Brown and J. McIntyre Machinery Ltd. v. Nicastro. Other revisions reflect the Supreme Court's decision in Hertz Corp. v. Friend on the meaning of "principal place of business" and summary judgment in light of amendments to FRCP 56.
