Ides and May encourage students to apply the rules of procedure through problems, to develop their skills of doctrinal analysis through lightly edited cases, and to view the complex relationship between procedure and litigation both chronologically and in context.

A fresh approach to teaching, Civil Procedure: Cases and Problems, features :

  • clear introductions to concepts and rules, background information and context where appropriate
  • a chronological organization, beginning with the filing of the suit, through appeals and the effect of judgment
  • accessible presentation of the rules, beginning with rules-based material and gradually proceeding to more complex rules in the context of litigation
  • an informative overview of Civil Procedure in the first chapter that orients students in the course content
    • a hypothetical case in the first chapter that illustrates and exemplifies each of the major topics of Civil Procedure
  • free-standing chapters that may be read or referenced out of order
  • more than 230 up-to-date problems, interspersed throughout the text
  • lightly edited cases that develop first-year students’ skills of doctrinal analysis
  • an integrated treatment of Alternative Dispute Resolution and Rule 11 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure
  • a revised and updated Teacher’s Manual* that includes:
    • sample syllabi
    • guidance for presenting casebook content
    • analysis of the cases
    • answers to the problems
    • advice for handling difficult topics
    • diagrams

Updated throughout, the revised Third Edition provides:

  • integration of the Restyled Federal Rules of Civil Procedure
  • discussion of high-tech procedural developments, such as personal jurisdiction and the internet, e-filing, email service of process, and e-discovery
  • major Supreme Court decisions, such as Bell Atlantic v. Twombly (pleading and Rule 12(b)(6), Taylor v. Sturgell (virtual representation), and Republic of Panama v. Pimentel (Rule 19)
  • recent developments under the Class Action Fairness Act and Class Arbitrations
  • challenging review problems at the end of each chapter
