This resource for new litigators and third-year law students overviews the basic steps in the typical civil litigation process and outlines the thought processes a litigator should use before and during each stage of the process. Focus is on federal district court practice and the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Rather than using case references, the book cites the treatises commonly used by litigators. Part 1 covers investigation and planning the litigation, and Part 2 explains how to conduct the litigation, with chapters on pleadings, discovery, motions, pretrial conferences, and settlements. The CD-ROM contains six tort and contract case files, with the plaintiff's and the defendant's initial case files. The witness materials for these case files are contained in the Teacher's Manual. The eighth edition incorporates significant Supreme Court decisions from 2007 through 2011 and offers a new section on liens and settlements. Mauet teaches law at the University of Arizona. Aspen Publishers is now Wolters Kluwer Law & Business. (A[c] Book News, Inc., Portland, OR)
