The Sixth Edition retains the existing structure and interactive features, but now includes multiple-choice questions at the end of each chapter, with explanations for each alternative. Chapter 1 includes a fresh emphasis on the distinction between constitutional and prudential standing, a topic about which the Supreme Court has shown recent interest. Several chapters present new significant Supreme Court cases: Chapter 1 (Lexmark International, Inc. v. Static Control Components, Inc.) (standing), Chapter 3 (Lightfoot v. Cendant Mortgage Co.) (federal-question jurisdiction and sue-and-be-sued clauses), Chapter 4 (Wellness International Network v. Sharif) (bankruptcy courts and Stern). Chapter 5 (Ziglar v. Abbasi) (Bivens claims and new contexts), and Chapter 7 (Sprint Communications Inc. v. Jacobs) (Younger abstention). Chapter 6 contains a lengthy note on Plumhoff v. Rickard (summary judgment and qualified immunity). Finally, the new edition includes updated notes with recent caselaw and new discussion points.
