Description

This authoritative text lays out the constitutional sources of federal judicial authority and its limits. Some limits are constitutional, others statutory, and still others self-imposed. There is extended consideration of constitutional and statutory arising-under jurisdiction, diversity jurisdiction, abstention, sovereign immunity and the Eleventh Amendment, official immunities, congressional control of federal jurisdiction, and the law applicable in the federal courts—the dreaded Erie doctrine.
