The 6th Edition of Civil Procedure: A Contemporary Approach is
designed to provide a clear and actively engaging presentation of
civil procedure in a manner that enables both students and
professors to assess learning success throughout the course. The
Sixth Edition fully incorporates all amendments to the Federal
Rules of Civil Procedure through December 1, 2020, as well as a few
case law developments since the 2018 publication date of the Fifth
Edition. Particularly noteworthy new cases that are included in
this edition are the Supreme Court's recent decisions pertaining to
arbitration: Lamps Plus, Inc v. Varela, 139 S. Ct. 1407 (2019)
(courts may not infer from an ambiguous agreement that parties have
consented to class arbitration); New Prime, Inc. v. Oliveira, 139
S. Ct. 532 (2019) (applicability of FAA's overage exclusion to be
determined by court not arbitrator); Henry Schein, Inc. v. Archer
and White Sales, Inc., 139 S. Ct. 524 (2019) (courts may not
determine arbitrability if that decision has been delegated to the
arbitrator under the agreement); and Epic Systems Corp. v. Lewis,
138 S. Ct. 1612 (2018) (FAA savings clause does not permit
invocation of arbitration-specific defenses; NLRA does not provide
basis for outlawing class action waivers in the labor dispute
context). Developments in the class action area are included as
well, including coverage of the 2018 amendments to Rule 23 as well
as Supreme Court decisions in Nutraceutical Corp. v. Lambert, 139
S. Ct. 710 (2019) (Rule 23(f)'s 14-day deadline for appeal is not
jurisdictional and is not subject to equitable tolling), and China
Agritech v. Resh, 138 S. Ct. 1800 (2018) (no tolling of statute of
limitations periods for putative class representatives who wait
until the expiration of the limitations period to file class
claims). Finally, this edition discusses recent developments with
respect to personal jurisdiction jurisprudence, covering the
emerging issue of personal jurisdiction over the claims of absent
class members who lack any connection with the forum state, and the
appropriate standard courts should use for determining whether a
claim arises out of or relates to contacts with the forum state for
purposes of specific jurisdiction. Both issues were before the
Supreme Court at the time of publication of the Sixth Edition and
will likely have been resolved by the time this edition is
published. This edition, like the one that preceded it, integrates
references to online assessment tools in the CasebookPlus (TM)
platform. These consist of a bank of 300 multiple-choice questions
that provide comprehensive assessment of the topics covered in this
book, with detailed feedback consisting of explanations for both
correct and incorrect responses. This feature provides an
unparalleled opportunity to engage with the material actively as
the course progresses and permits students and professors to
determine the extent to which the material is being learned. The
bank of questions also serve as excellent preparation for the civil
procedure component of the Multistate Bar Exam. CasebookPlus
