eBook - Lifetime digital access to the eBook, with the ability to highlight and take notes.
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.
