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.

Often, members of the public become engaged (or enraged) when they read about Supreme Court decisions involving substantive rights, whether the case involves same sex marriage, the right of corporations to spend huge sums to support political candidates, or the right of citizens to own firearms. But members of the public, students, and even many lawyers are not likely to understand the impact of procedural decisions. This book focuses on a series of Supreme Court decisions and changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure that demonstrate the current Court¿s erosion of rules allowing plaintiffs access to court. Many of those decisions unravel rules developed during the heyday of the Progressive Movement and the postwar era when courts favored expanding access to court. This book animates procedure by focusing on the Court¿s concerted effort to close the courthouse door. It covers a number of specific issues, including decisions and rules changes dealing with personal jurisdiction, pleading, discovery, summary judgment practice, and class actions. It explores the not-so-hidden bias in favor of defendants generally and corporate defendants specifically. It also briefly explores the impact that Justice Scalia¿s death may have on the future direction of the Court¿s war on procedure.

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.

A supplement includes all updated Federal Rules, the pleadings in Twombly and Iqbal, a model case file, state materials, and other important teaching tools.
