Overview

Select Legal Topics is a compendium of legal journal articles covering a wide spectrum of topics in the fields of criminal law, evidence, civil procedure, family law, labor and employment law, civil rights, tort law, and federal procedure. For example, the reprinted criminal law articles include analyses of suppression motions and the requirement that the criminal defendant be afforded a speedy trial. The section on evidence includes articles that analyze polygraph and DNA evidence. The civil procedures articles consider the requirement of filing a notice of claim when a municipality is the subject of a lawsuit, and developments in trial by jury. Articles covering family law consider artificial insemination and paternity, as well as child abuse and child negligence. The labor and employment articles include analyses of discrimination in the workplace and trial by jury. The civil rights articles mainly consider the Civil Rights Statute 42 U.S.C. Sec. 1983. The articles focusing on tort law include analyses of loss of consortium, the intentional infliction of mental distress, and baseball liability. Finally, the federal procedure articles consider eminent domain, pretrial orders, the finality requirement in federal appeals, and an analysis of rules 15 and 16 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. This book will serve to inform laymen, students, lawyers, law professors, and perhaps, the judiciary, of ideas and developments in these fields of law.

Editorial Reviews

Thomas F. Liotti
It informs and covers topics that are of great benefit to practitioner, judge, law student, and even law professor. Any person who takes the time to read this well researched and well written book will stand to benefit in a practical and theoretical fashion.
Chris Wittstruck
A compendium of articles by one of New York's most prolific and insightful legal commentators is quite welcome. Having a single-source reference to Andrew Schatkin's body of work is truly a practitioner's dream.
