E&E Question

Postby WilliamMary123 » Fri Sep 16, 2011 6:22 pm

What editions are hte latest for each?

On Amazon, I'm just seeing the 6th as the latest for Civ Pro, but it was published in 2008...

does the year really matter?

There have been several recent case law developments that would make the most recent edition of the E&E more helpful. For example: Twombly (2007), Iqbal (2009).

Also, I believe that the FRCP was basically rewritten in 2007, so any E&E published before '07 probably has some outdated info.

However, generally, for most subjects, it is not necessary to get the most recent E&E.

the 6th edition is the latest.

The Twombly and Iqbal cases are not in any E&E. However, they are one of the very few "new" things not included.

A new version of the FRCP was approved by the Supreme Court in 2007. However, almost nothing has changed. If something has changed, and you need the 6th edition, your professor should mention it in class or it should be obvious in the readings.

Will be interesting to see if New Albany v. Louisville Tractor makes it to the SCOTUS. It's essentially a direct shot at the Twombly/Iqbal ruling.
