Manual for Complex Litigation, Fourth. Issued in 2004 under the auspices of the Federal Judicial Center, Washington, D.C., the Fourth Edition of the Manual is an important resource for federal litigators. This successor to the Manual for Complex Litigation, Third, describes approaches that trial judges have found to be useful in managing complex cases. This edition updates the treatment of electronic discovery and other aspects of pretrial management and describes major changes affecting case management in the substantive and procedural law in mass torts, class actions, intellectual property, employment discrimination, and other types of litigation. A new chapter deals with managing scientific evidence.
