This well-established treatise is premised on the assumption that the key to understanding the principles of civil procedure is to know why: why the principles were created and why they are invoked. The treatise is written to answer these questions as it lays out the basic principles of civil procedure. It also reflects the authors' belief that students of civil procedure can understand and appreciate complex principles when they are clearly presented; teaching civil procedure does not require dumbing it down. The authors use the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure as a model, but they also refer to different state rules and doctrines where appropriate in order to present a representative cross-section of state models. Although they discuss important civil procedure cases in the text, thus supporting the most widely used civil procedure casebooks using these same cases, they also provide useful references to secondary sources and illustrative cases for the reader who wants to explore further.

Weissenberger's Michigan Civil Procedure Litigation Manual provides a thorough, yet concise, analysis of the Michigan Court Rules. It is intended to aid the practitioner, judge, and student alike in understanding the operation and application of the Rules in situations that recur throughout the course of litigation. Although this manual is not exhaustive of every procedural issue in Michigan, it is anticipated that it will function both to identify other additional sources on Michigan law as well as to resolve problems frequently engendered by the application of the Rules. Each chapter contains the full text of each Rule in a format that lends itself to easier examination and dissection than any other currently available. Practical commentary on each rule is also provided, as are hundreds of illustrations of possible applications. This publication also includes a list of additional Michigan authorities and a carefully-selected list of leading cases. These cases are intended to serve as starting points for additional research; comprehensive annotations are beyond the scope of this manual. This manual also contains a host of other useful features, including a directory of all clerks of court within the state of Michigan, a note on judicial rulemaking in Michigan, an appellate district map, official forms, and a table used to calculate the number of days between two dates, as well as the full text of the Michigan Rules of Appellate Procedure.

The essential civil litigation handbook devoted to the "HOW TO's " of California procedure. The California Code of Civil Procedure, California Rules of Court, and Judicial Council forms are combined so that the reader learns for any given task: which form to use, how to complete it, and how and when to file and serve it. This step-by-step litigation handbook is used by attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries both as a quick reference and as a training tool, and has been adopted as a text by several California college paralegal and legal secretarial programs. Additionally, law librarians of numerous California county law libraries keep it on reserve to help self-represented litigants. Updated at least annually to reflect new rules and forms, the book contains over 390 pages explaining the various phases of a California civil case. Chapters include: Appearance by Plaintiff (preparing the Complaint and all required forms, filing and serving by all allowable methods); Filing and Service (filing and serving documents throughout the case); Default by Defendant (entering a default and obtaining default judgment); Appearance by Defendant (preparing, filing, and serving answers and cross-complaints); Motions (preparing regular motions, discovery motions, ex parte applications, demurrers, and motions to strike); Discovery (setting up depositions of parties and non-parties, preparing, serving, and responding to requests for admission, interrogatories, and requests for production); Settlement and Dismissal (notifying the court of settlement and dismissing the case); Pre-Trial (preparing case management documentation and subpoenaing witnesses); and Judgment and Enforcement (placing liens on real estate, noticing judgment debtor exams, obtaining costs of suit).
