First Assignments will be posted as they become available.

Civil Procedure- Professor Teitz

Please read and be prepared to discuss the following in the first class:

     1. Schlagenhauf v. Holder and Sibbach v. Wilson (available here)
     2. 28 U.S.C. ' 1652 (in West Federal Rules Book)
     3. Fed. R. Civ. P. 35, 37 (in West Federal Rules Book)

We will spend the first several classes on these cases but you should read both for the first class. They are hard cases so you should not expect to master them even with multiple readings (especially Sibbach ) before class. We will be looking at the history of the Federal Rules of Procedure, the use of precedent, as well as the specific use of Rule 35 and 37.

I look forward to meeting you and spending the semester together.

**Please ensure that you are completing your assignment in the correct textbook.**
