Federal Litigation Guide: New York and Connecticut, a three-volume set, provides full coverage of civil litigation practice and procedure, from the filing of the lawsuit through judgment with emphasis on pretrial procedure, and includes:

  • Local Practice Coverage--ensures that the federal practitioner in New York or Connecticut is in compliance with all the local procedural rules of the court in which a case is pending; provides specific, complete analysis of the local rules of the federal district courts in New York and Connecticut
  • Easily Accessible Text--allows you to quickly find the information of specific subjects through either the chapter synopsis or the index; chapters are logically divided into frequent descriptive subtopic headings
  • Strategic Overviews--provide important background on how the particular proceeding or motion fits into the overall goal of the litigation; highlight key considerations that the practitioner should keep in mind regarding the subject of that chapter
  • Checklists--ensure that no important considerations, requirements or procedural steps for each aspect of the litigation are overlooked; cross-referenced to the text (for further discussion) and to the applicable forms
  • Forms--save hours of document drafting time by providing a handy starting point for creating litigation documents; each form is tailored to the format and content requirements of the district courts in New York and Connecticut, and is accompanied by explanatory comments, cross referenced to discussion in the text, and citations to the relevant Federal and local procedural rules
  • Quick References--save time by guiding you to related forms, checklists and other sources for additional research, such as Moore's Federal Practice, 3d Edition from Matthew Bender
