Pick a topic for my Civ Pro paper

Postby Nova » Sun Nov 04, 2012 1:37 am

Looking for a fun and exciting paper topic for Civ Pro.

Sooo.... has anything cool happened the past few years or so regarding the federal rules of civil procedure??

I could write about,

-how a rule has been applied in two or three different courts in one particular kind of fact scenario

-how a rule has been applied inconsistently in a couple of different influential courts;

-a federal circuit split on the correct way to interpret a rule

-how an old version of a rule has been applied in a particular court at one point in time and then at how a revised version of the rule has been later applied by the same court.

-----------

Where am I even supposed to find stories on this shit? Some Civ Pro blog or somthing?

Thanks TLS!

Stream of commerce seems like something to talk about.

Seems to be the thought process of legal academics for the past 3 years.

I'm willing to bet Nova is in my Civ Pro class. I am also working on this paper and I was thinking it might not be a bad idea to pick a topic I don't know much about but am very interested in.

So does anyone have any thought about Civ Procedure issues in the IP field (either patents or soft IP)?

If I can't come up with anything more interesting I'll probably just write about the sufficiency of electronic notice.

Thanks!

Lol I do like Civ Pro but I wouldn't say I am all that interested in it but we have to write the paper on a procedural issue. I'm just thinking I can combine it with something that I am interested in (which is IP).
