This study aid provides a deeper understanding of the great civil procedure cases. Fourteen professors each wrote a short chapter on one of the cases, retelling the cases in their own voice and by their own method. Each chapter has separate sections containing the social and legal background of the case, factual background, lower court proceedings, final appellate disposition, issues, decisions, reasons, separate opinions, factual postscript to the case, why the case is famous and when it became so, and why it is still a leading case.
