The legal framework that underpins the federal procedure system emanates from four sources of binding authority: (1) the Constitution of the United States; (2) the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) and Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure (FRAP); (3) the Judiciary Code (enacted by Congress and codified by Title 28 of the United States Codes); and (4) federal case law.
Because many states have adopted much of the FRCP into their State rules of civil procedure, this books will serve as an indispensable resource not only for understanding the workings of the federal civil justice system in the United States, but also of State procedural law. In turn, throughout this book, readers will have access to the latest legal amendments and updates, with statutes and rules reflecting amendments through December 1, 2022.
