This law school casebook includes both new and classic cases selected for their teachability and stimulation for students. Newspaper articles and editorials have been reprinted to emphasize public controversies surrounding particular tort law decisions. Notes are straightforward and designed to explore policy concerns rather than struggle with clarifying black letter law. Highlights of new cases include a second-hand smoke case and another case of university students suing for battery after being intentionally exposed to radiation on a field trip, intentional interference with contractual and economic relations, and sexual harassment as grounds for a suit for intentional infliction of mental distress.

This casebook is the concise, and very modern, version of a respected classic of civil procedure casebooks. The key to its brevity is its efficient and systematic step-by-step survey of the subject in Part One, which provides a tight 270-page comprehensive treatment of current civil procedure. The survey suffices to give the students a complete and solid grounding in civil procedure by means of the cases, commentaries, text, and questions that progress from pretrial and settlement to trial, judgment, appeal, jurisdiction, and complex litigation. This brief yet thorough coverage leaves time for in-depth treatment of a few selected problem areas regarding the system's fundamental structure in Part Two on governing law, Part Three on authority to adjudicate, and Part Four on res judicata. The twelfth edition has been thoroughly updated. It covers major new cases on general and specific personal jurisdiction and on pleading, and it introduces new materials on the res judicata effect of statute-of-limitations dismissals. It also fully incorporates the new amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which affect such important topics as discovery.

From a preeminent authorship team, Criminal Law and its Processes: Cases and Materials, Tenth Edition, continues in the tradition of its best-selling predecessors by providing students not only with a cohesive policy framework through which they can understand and examine the use of criminal laws as a means for social control but also analytic tools to understand and apply important criminal law doctrines. Instead of presenting the elements of various crimes in a disjointed fashion, Criminal Law and its Processes: Cases and Materials focuses on having students develop a nuanced understanding of the underlying principles, rules, and policy rationales that inform all criminal laws. A cases-and-notes pedagogy along with scholarly excerpts, questions, and notes, provides students with a rich foundation for not only the academic examination of criminal laws but also the application of the law to real-world scenarios. Features: Retains prior edition’s principal cases and Notes and Questions approach to explain and probe fundamental concepts. Notes updated to incorporate contemporary cases and recent news touching on criminal law. Inclusion of additional preeminent cases in the field of criminal law, including: Yates v. United States, 135 S. Ct. 1074, (Supreme Court application of common statutory interpretation techniques and the rule of lenity) Rosamond v. United States, 134 S. Ct. 1240, (Supreme Court examination of accomplice liability) Perry v. Florida (examination of the agreement requirement for conspiracy through the lens of a Florida sexual battery offense).

This popular casebook, through the selection of classic and modern cases, provides an excellent tool for teaching students the common law foundations of the criminal law and modern statutory reform, including the Model Penal Code. Along the way, the casebook considers modern controversies (e.g., "shaming" punishment, rape law, self-defense by battered women, euthanasia, the role of culture in determining culpability), and creatively uses literature (e.g., examining insanity through Edgar Allen Poe's The-Tell Tale Heart) and even "brain teasers" to confront (as the Preface states) "the Big Questions . . . that philosophers, theologians, scientists, and poets, as well as lawyers, have grappled with for centuries." Professor Stephen Garvey (Cornell) joins the casebook beginning with this new edition. The Sixth Edition, as in the past, includes some new cases, as well as updates in the notes that bring current issues of criminal law to the fore.

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.

It includes textual notes examining key theoretical and policy questions. New edition includes updated discussion of the ADAAA and new EEOC and DOJ regulations, deinstitutionalization litigation, standing and pleading requirements in public accommodations litigation, the implications of the Affordable Care Act, and other topics.

This is the 2006 Supplement to Hazard, Tait and Fletcher's Cases and Materials on Pleading and Procedure, State and Federal, Ninth Edition. The authors have thoroughly revised and updated this popular casebook for the Ninth Edition. It features a comprehensive treatment of territorial and subject matter jurisdiction and of the Erie doctrine. The authors have substantially revised and reorganized chapters on pleading, joinder and class actions, discovery, disposition without trial, and trial. The treatment of basic preclusion doctrine has been reorganized, expanded, and clarified. Updates incorporate all the latest changes in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the latest Supreme Court decisions, and the latest statutes, including the Class Action Fairness Act of 2005. The authors have added new sections on procedural due process, litigation costs and access to justice, Internet jurisdiction, electronic discovery, discovery ethics, settlement and court-annexed alternative dispute resolution, and judicial control of damage awards. There is increased attention throughout to comparative law perspectives on American procedure, including differences from, and conflicts with, other legal systems concerning discovery, jurisdiction, and judicial control of litigation. Material has been condensed, rewritten and reoriented to concentrate more on illuminating the principal cases and the major policy issues in the field. Tighter editing of principal cases and elimination of marginal materials have reduced the book?s length by more than 100 pages from the Eighth Edition.

The casebook, which is organized along traditional doctrinal lines, teaches students how tort law works to resolve disputes in the real world of litigation and settlement negotiations. A teacher can start with intentional torts or with negligence. The first chapter is an overview of trial court procedure in tort cases; the second is a concise treatment of intentional torts and defenses; and the third introduces negligence law with a streamlined treatment of the core breach-of-duty/substandard conduct concept. Subsequent chapters treat the remainder of the prima facie case in negligence, the principal defenses to negligence liability, and some of the basic concepts entailed in multiparty litigation. The book's concluding chapters are basic coverage of medical malpractice, common law strict liability, products liability, and nuisance.
