Civil Procedure : Examples & Explanations, Fifth Edition

Description

The latest edition upholds the standard of quality that Glannon originally set: - engages student interest as it teaches, making learning as painless as possible - covers all aspects of the first-year course, including the difficult areas of res judicata, collateral estoppel, and personal and subject matter jurisdiction - presents accessible introductions and interesting examples - makes excellent use of the popular Examples and Explanations format, which is highly effective in learning and applying the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure - gives examples that progress gradually from simple to challenging and build student confidence - uses abundant visual aids, such as diagrams, charts, and documents New and revised material includes: - extensive changes to the chapters in Diversity, Federal Arising-Under Jurisdiction, and Supplemental Jurisdiction in light of recent Supreme Court cases, such as Grable & Sons Metal Products, Inc. v. Darue Engineering & Manufacturing and Exxon-Mobil Corporation v. Allapattah Services, Inc. - a new chapter on Federal Rule 15 (Amendments to Pleadings), including amendments as of right, the relation back of amendments, and the confusing provision for amendments adding claims against new parties - citations reflecting the most current law throughout the book, which has been entirely updated
