Summary: The Fourth Edition of this professor-friendly revision incorporates the 2007 restyling amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure without changing the pagination of the Third Edition. This documentary supplement uses the actual litigation documents from Anderson v.

Their extensive notes and comments contain informative analysis of the legal, tactical, and ethical issues raised by the materials, as well as inside information about the case obtained through extensive interviews with the lawyers. The authors also present thought-provoking questions to facilitate class discussion. Photographs, maps newspaper articles, and excerpts from scientific reports provide the students with a broader context. The reality of the material, its connection to a well-told story, and the opportunity to follow one litigation from start to finish, enliven the class, strengthen topical coverage, and command attention to issues otherwise difficult to inject into the course.
