New Pleading in the Twenty-First Century

Slamming the Federal Courthouse Doors?

Scott Dodson

  • This is the first book to comprehensively analyze, critique, and provide solutions for the new pleading regime in U.S. federal courts.
  • The author includes two distinct policy arguments to remedy the adverse effects of the New Pleading rules: a return to the Old Pleading rules or the adoption of "New Discovery"
  • Situates New Pleading and the solutions the author advocates in a wider international comparative context.
  • The book provides a comprehensive, doctrinal, theoretical, and prospective look at what it means for U.S. federal civil procedure, both at home and in the larger global community as a result of New Pleading.
