This newly revised three-volume set provides all of the basic forms needed in the vast majority of cases litigated in federal courts. The set has been updated to incorporate all the 2007 "restylization" changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, effective December 1, 2007. Although these changes were intended to be strictly stylistic, they were nonetheless extensive. As a result, every form, note, and page of this set has been revised and updated.
The set is organized chronologically, in the order of tasks normally performed by attorneys handling litigation. The set begins with forms appropriate for pre-litigation considerations, including settlement, alternative dispute resolution, etc. It moves on to provide forms for all manner of pre-trial procedures, including forms dealing with subject matter and personal jurisdiction considerations, venue considerations, initial pleadings, responses to initial pleadings, amendments to pleadings, preliminary motions, and mandatory disclosures and discovery.
Forms are also provided for seeking or resisting equitable remedies, including injunctions and receivers. The set then provides forms in connection with jury trials, motions in limine, securing and presenting witnesses and other forms of evidence. The trial portion of the forms concludes with forms for proposed findings and jury verdicts, both general (with and without interrogatories) and special. Post-judgment motions, including motions for new trials, motions for judgment as a matter of law, and for relief from judgment are also covered. Enforcement of judgments, stays of enforcement of judgments, and appeals are also briefly covered.
Each of the forms provided in this set clearly describes the individual, fact specific information that the attorney must add to adapt the form for use in any particular case, and most come with brief notes analyzing practice concerns that arise in connection with use of the forms.
