North Carolina Civil Procedure, Fourth Edition is a comprehensive, authoritative and practical exposition on North Carolina civil procedure. The Fourth Edition covers every step of a lawsuit from filing to conclusion. The text of each of North Carolina's Rules appears in full, with accompanying analysis by the author, and the relevant case law applying and interpreting the rules. Mr. Wilson reviews the history and construction of the North Carolina Rules of Civil Procedure, and reveals the logical thread running through them. The Fourth Edition is conveniently organized for quick access in the courtroom, with each chapter discussing the correspondingly numbered rule. In addition, there are chapters addressing the critical procedural issues of personal jurisdiction (Chapter 85), venue (Chapter 86); statutes of limitation and repose (Chapter 87) and res judicata (Chapter 88).
