The original edition was written by the late Professor James William Moore, one of the original drafters of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, in 1938. From its initial publication, Moore's instantly became the standard reference work on federal court procedure and has been cited thousands of times in federal court decisions.

The current 3rd Edition, first published in 1997, represents a complete overhaul of this classic work, authored by over 50 distinguished federal judges, law professors, and practitioners, including many who, like Professor Moore, have been directly involved in the federal rulemaking process.

Moore's three appellate volumes are fully updated with the latest analysis of case law and rules.
