Summary

The distinctive feature of this Federal Courts casebook, and the main difference between it and other Federal Courts books, is its systematic focus on remedial issues, especially the problems that arise when a litigant tries to enforce federal constitutional rights against state officers in the federal courts. Departing from the traditional approach of Federal Courts books, the book begins with a chapter on 1983 litigation, and includes a comprehensive treatment of habeas corpus. The book stresses economy of means, clarity of presentation, and attention to the real-world Federal Courts issues that students need to understand and anticipate. This edition covers the principal cases decided by the Supreme Court over the past four years, including Hertz Corp. v. Friend (chapter 3), Hein v. Freedom From Religion Foundation and Massachusetts v. EPA (chapter 4), Watson v. Philip Morris and Haywood v. Drown (chapter 7), Boumediene v. Bush, Danforth v. Minnesota, Schriro v. Landrigan, Panetti v. Quarterman, and Magwood v. Patterson (chapter 9).
