Description

This casebook explores the law of remedies, and several features distinguish it from other leading casebooks. This book treats equity as a vital part of modern law. It has extensive coverage of unjust enrichment and restitution. It makes ample use of historical and empirical materials. And the book uses the pedagogically innovative technique of illustrating many remedial principles in both a tort context and a contract context. Although there is somewhat more emphasis on private law in this book, the latest edition includes a new chapter on "Remedies Against the Government," which introduces suits against government officers, Bivens, qualified immunity, and structural injunctions. The book is named for three of the previous editors: James Barr Ames, Zechariah Chafee, Jr., and Edward D. Re.
