This Updated 4th Edition revises the casebook to account for the restyling of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. The pagination has not changed from the 4th Edition (2005). Students will be alerted to the new numbering and wording of the Rules; but teachers can continue to use their current versions of the 4th edition as originally published. On December 1, 2007, the "restyled" Federal Rules went into effect. The hope is that this restyling will pay dividends for decades, and that beginning law students will be among the first beneficiaries. For them, the restyled rules will be the only rules they will know in their professional careers. We assume that most teachers will have their students read and learn from the restyled rules. But this watershed does not change what's in the decided cases under the rules as they were written before Dec. 1, 2007. So students may find it unnerving for their rule pamphlets to say something different from what they find quoted in the cases in the casebook. The Updated 4th Edition is designed to deal with these issues. It has been changed only to reflect changes in numbering or wording of the rules that resulted from the restyling project. Teachers who have been using the 4th edition as published in 2005 can continue to use it; they need not start working afresh with the updated 4th edition. To facilitate that continued use of the existing book, we will soon circulate a listing of the changes in this revised edition. Teachers will therefore be able simply to annotate their copies of the original 4th edition and have the equivalent of what the students possess in the updated 4th edition. In addition, the authors have added an Appendix including two post-publication decisions that were previously handled by circulating edited versions suitable for class handouts--Bell Atlantic Corp. v. Twombly and Exxon Mobil Corp. v. Allapattah Services, Inc. The authors have included footnotes on the pages where they recommend substituting these cases to refer readers to them. In 2009, we expect to publish the 5th edition. That will, of course, be based on the restyled rules, but it move far beyond the minimal accounting for small numbering and wording changes resulting from restyling. We are pleased to announce that Professor James Pfander, of Northwestern University Law School, will be a new co-author on the 5th edition.

Since it first appeared, this casebook has sought to capture the evolving challenges of civil procedure in a way that engages students and fosters critical judgment on the underlying policy issues. The authors have closely monitored the evolution of procedure over this time, and adapted the basic structure of the book to take account of those changes. That evolution remains central to the seventh edition. The new edition retains the basic structure of the book, and a great deal of the existing superstructure of principal cases. It adds substantially revised text and note material to present contemporary issues in the context of those cases or new principal cases. The discovery chapter, for example, is infused with coverage of the 2015 rule amendments that have received so much attention. The personal jurisdiction chapter integrates the many recent Supreme Court decisions into the existing framework, conveying the developments that have occurred since the last edition appeared in 2013. The new edition also offers new principal cases to examine and illustrate a number of issues. A new Rule 19 case on required parties presents the contemporary issues in a setting likely to be interesting to many students. A new Internet jurisdiction case involves online payday lending, an example of the fast-moving world of Internet-based commerce. A recent supplemental jurisdiction case enables students to work through the application of § 1367 in a setting that also involves appreciation of various joinder concepts. A new class-action case presents the challenges of consumer class actions. New Supreme Court and other principal cases address issues of subject matter jurisdiction and appellate jurisdiction. As reflects contemporary litigation, intellectual property cases are more prominent than in previous editions.

Civil Procedure: Cases and Problems, Seventh Edition by Barbara Allen Babcock, Toni M. Massaro, Norman W. Spaulding, and new co-author Myriam Gilles (the #5 most cited civil procedure scholar in the country) is the ideal casebook for the modern Civil Procedure course. With lightly-edited cases, both canonical and contemporary, and engaging hypothetical problems, the Seventh Edition of Civil Procedure: Cases and Problems promotes student understanding of modern procedure, the adversary system and alternatives, the relationship between substance and procedure, and systemic problems in access to justice. This casebook pioneered the “due process approach” to the study of procedure and is designed to create an inclusive learning environment, emphasizing the formative role of public interest litigation in modern procedural law and the voices of women and people of color in shaping the field in both practice and scholarship. It is the only major casebook on the market written by co-authors who together have received more than a dozen awards for excellence in teaching. New to the Seventh Edition: Shorter notes and materials after principal cases Updated cases and materials on personal and subject matter jurisdiction, plausibility pleading, affirmative defenses, the new proportionality requirement in discovery, and more Revised and expanded treatment of arbitration and ADR Revised and expanded treatment of MDL Revised and streamlined treatment of class action doctrine Revised and streamlined treatment of preclusion Professors and students will benefit from: Lightly-edited cases paired with thoughtful notes and questions. Concise examination of scholarship and empirical data bearing on various procedural rules Close attention to the underlying social and economic contexts in which the rules function with emphasis on the consequences for vulnerable populations Meaningful discussion of oft-marginalized topics, including: Alternative Dispute Resolution, Discovery (including e-discovery), Aggregate Litigation, Remedies, Adversary Ethics, and Trial Practice. Hypothetical problems presented in each chapter and revisited in later chapters to support in-class exercises and awareness of how phases of litigation influence each other. A casebook designed to create an inclusive classroom experience
