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.

Major Supreme Court precedents are followed and complemented by up-to-date lower court decisions.

Weissenberger's Michigan Civil Procedure Litigation Manual provides a thorough, yet concise, analysis of the Michigan Court Rules. It is intended to aid the practitioner, judge, and student alike in understanding the operation and application of the Rules in situations that recur throughout the course of litigation. Although this manual is not exhaustive of every procedural issue in Michigan, it is anticipated that it will function both to identify other additional sources on Michigan law as well as to resolve problems frequently engendered by the application of the Rules. Each chapter contains the full text of each Rule in a format that lends itself to easier examination and dissection than any other currently available. Practical commentary on each rule is also provided, as are hundreds of illustrations of possible applications. This publication also includes a list of additional Michigan authorities and a carefully-selected list of leading cases. These cases are intended to serve as starting points for additional research; comprehensive annotations are beyond the scope of this manual. This manual also contains a host of other useful features, including a directory of all clerks of court within the state of Michigan, a note on judicial rulemaking in Michigan, an appellate district map, official forms, and a table used to calculate the number of days between two dates, as well as the full text of the Michigan Rules of Appellate Procedure.
