This well-established treatise is premised on the assumption that the key to understanding the principles of civil procedure is to know why: why the principles were created and why they are invoked. The treatise is written to answer these questions as it lays out the basic principles of civil procedure. It also reflects the authors' belief that students of civil procedure can understand and appreciate complex principles when they are clearly presented; teaching civil procedure does not require dumbing it down. The authors use the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure as a model, but they also refer to different state rules and doctrines where appropriate in order to present a representative cross-section of state models. Although they discuss important civil procedure cases in the text, thus supporting the most widely used civil procedure casebooks using these same cases, they also provide useful references to secondary sources and illustrative cases for the reader who wants to explore further.

This book is a collaborative effort by fourteen law-school professors to provide a deeper understanding of the great civil procedure cases. The professors each wrote a short chapter on one of the cases, retelling the cases in their own voice and by their own method. Each chapter has a fairly consistent structure, with separate sections on: social and legal background of the case; factual background of the case; lower court proceedings in the case; final appellate disposition, including issues, decisions, reasons, and separate opinions; factual postscript to the case; immediate impact of the case on the development of the law (why the case is famous and when it became so); and continuing importance of the case today (why it is still a leading case).The accompanying website, http://civprostories.law.cornell.edu, serves as a research tool for students, academics, and practitioners.

Civil Procedure is written by one of the leading voices on Procedure, Stephen Yeazell, who for this Ninth Edition is joined by his colleague Joanna Schwartz. Yeazell and Schwartz employ a pedagogical style that offers flexible organization at a manageable length. The book gives students a working knowledge of the procedural system and introduces the techniques of statutory analysis. The cases selected are factually interesting and do not involve substantive matters beyond the experience of first-year students. The problems following the cases present real-life issues. Finally, the book incorporates a number of dissenting opinions to dispel the notion that most procedural disputes present clear-cut issues.

The Revised 4th Edition of Civil Procedure: A Contemporary Approach is updated with references to the impending 2015 amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, as well as case law developments since the 2014 publication date of the Fourth Edition. Major recent case law developments included in this revised edition consist of decisions from the Supreme Court addressing personal jurisdiction (Goodyear Dunlop Tires Operations, S.A. v. Brown, 131 S. Ct. 2846 (2011), J. McIntyre Machinery, Ltd. v. Nicastro, 131 S. Ct. 2780 (2011), and Daimler AG v. Bauman, 134 S. Ct. 746 (2014)), federal question jurisdiction (Gunn v. Minton, 133 S. Ct. 1059 (2013)), removal of class actions (Standard Fire Ins. Co. v. Knowles, 133 S. Ct. 1345 (2013)), change of venue and forum-selection clauses (Atl. Marine Constr. Co., Inc. v. U.S. Dist. Court for W. Dist. of Texas, 134 S. Ct. 568 (2013) [now a principal case]), class certification (Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. v. Dukes, 131 S. Ct. 2541 (2011), Comcast Corp. v. Behrend, 133 S. Ct. 1426 (2013), Amgen Inc. v. Conn. Ret. Plans & Trust Funds, 133 S. Ct. 1184 (2013)), class arbitration waivers (AT&T Mobility LLC v. Concepcion, 131 S. Ct. 1740 (2011) and American Express Co. v. Italian Colors Restaurant, 133 S. Ct. 2304 (2013)), and offers of judgment (Genesis HealthCare Corp. v. Symczyk, 133 S. Ct. 1523 (2013)). Regarding the impending 2015 amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, this revised edition makes reference to them in the text where appropriate. The changes include the "Duke Rules" package, which alters Rules 1, 4, 16, 26, 30, 31, 33 and 34 to make proportionality a main component of the scope of discovery, to eliminate access to subject matter discovery, require early discussions regarding preservation and privilege protection, permit early document requests, and shorten the time permitted to issue scheduling orders and to achieve service of process. The amendment to Rule 37 codifies an approach to preservation and spoliation that favors curative measures unless there is intentional spoliation, in which case more severe sanctions such as adverse inference instructions or dismissal become available. This edition also fully incorporates recent amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and to Title 28 of the U.S. Code, including the Federal Courts Jurisdiction and Venue Clarification Act of 2011 and the 2013 amendment to Rule 45 (subpoenas). Finally, the Revised Fourth Edition integrates references to online assessment tools in the Casebook Plus platform. These consist of a bank of 200 multiple-choice questions that provide comprehensive assessment of the topics covered in this book, with detailed feedback consisting of explanations for both correct and incorrect responses. This feature provides an unparalleled opportunity to engage with the material actively as the course progresses and permits students and professors to determine the extent to which the material is being learned.
