Civil Procedure: A Contemporary Approach 4th provides the most up-to-date casebook on the market that includes all significant developments in federal civil procedure through the beginning of 2014. New and relevant cases were added either as principal cases, FLEX Cases (available via the e-book), or in the discussion notes that appear after principal cases. Highlights include: Goodyear Dunlop Tires Operations, S.A. v. Brown, 131 S. Ct. 2846 (2011) and J. McIntyre Machinery, Ltd. v. Nicastro, 131 S. Ct. 2780 (2011) (personal jurisdiction); Gunn v. Minton, 133 S. Ct. 1059 (2013) (federal question jurisdiction); Standard Fire Ins. Co. v. Knowles, 133 S. Ct. 1345 (2013) (removal under the Class Action Fairness Act); Atl. Marine Constr. Co., Inc. v. U.S. Dist. Court for W. Dist. of Texas, 134 S. Ct. 568 (2013) (change of venue and forum-selection clauses); Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. v. Dukes, 131 S. Ct. 2541 (2011) (damages v. injunctive relief class certification and commonality in class actions); AT&T Mobility LLC v. Concepcion, 131 S. Ct. 1740 (2011) and American Express Co. v. Italian Colors Restaurant, 133 S. Ct. 2304 (2013) (class arbitration waivers); Comcast Corp. v. Behrend, 133 S. Ct. 1426 (2013) and Amgen Inc. v. Conn. Ret. Plans & Trust Funds, 133 S. Ct. 1184 (2013) (predominance in class actions); Moore v. Publicis Groupe, 287 F.R.D. 182 (S.D.N.Y. 2012) (Peck, M.J.) (predictive coding); Sekisui American Corp. v. Hart, 945 F. Supp. 2d 494 (S.D.N.Y. 2013) (spoliation and sanctions); Genesis HealthCare Corp. v. Symczyk, 133 S. Ct. 1523 (2013) (offer of judgment). Additionally, the Fourth Edition fully incorporates recent amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and to Title 28 of the U.S. Code, including the Federal Courts Jurisdiction and Venue Clarification Act of 2011 and the 2013 amendment to Rule 45 (subpoenas). Finally, the Fourth Edition includes references where appropriate to the amendments to the Federal Rules proposed by the Advisory Committee in 2013 pertaining to discovery--the "Duke Rules"" package and proposed new Rule 37 addressing preservation and spoliation sanctions--as well as the proposal to abolish the Appendix of Forms. The casebook features a novel visual display and layout that uses text boxes, diagrams, and color/border segregated feature sections for hypotheticals, references to scholarly debates, useful information for students, and thought-provoking questions. A major distinguishing feature of the book is its inclusion of an accompanying electronic version with extensive hyperlinks to Westlaw versions of legal materials, Black's Law Dictionary definitions, supplementary online resources, and more.
