Grossman and Vaughn's A Civil Action: A Documentary Companion, 4th
This revision incorporates the 2007 restyling amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure while keeping the third edition's pagination.
This supplement uses the actual litigation documents from Anderson v. Cryovac, the toxic torts case portrayed in Jonathan Harr's best seller A Civil Action to explore issues in civil procedure. It can be used in conjunction with Harr's book and any civil procedure casebook to teach the first-year civil procedure course. It can also serve as the sole text for an advanced litigation class. The authors have arranged the documents from the case topically to illustrate every phase of the litigation process from notice to appeal. Their extensive notes and comments contain informative analysis of the legal, tactical, and ethical issues.
