by Jason Collver on October 16, 2013

West Publishing is publishing Professor George Kuney and Donna Looper’s book A Civil Matter: A Guide to Civil Procedure and Litigation, both as a print edition supported by a website and a VitalSource robust e-book. The book is a concise but detailed overview of the civil litigation process under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and follows a diversity car accident case from the Federal District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee from the precipitating accident through post-trial proceedings and settlement before retrial.

In either format, the book links readers to the entire case file as well as the authorities discussed in the text, allowing easy access to these underlying sources to allow students to examine and understand the civil litigation process in detail. The book is intended as an introduction and  overview for those unfamiliar with civil litigation who need to develop a detailed understanding of the nuts and bolts of the process quickly and efficiently.
