Description : This comprehensive Understanding treatise offers a coherent and complete overview of the complex constitutional principles and doctrines governing the federal judicial system. In a single volume, it provides a rich discussion of Article III of the United States Constitution, which governs the federal judiciary, and explains the role of Congress in regulating the federal courts' jurisdiction. After explaining the constitutional and statutory bases for federal jurisdiction, the treatise discusses the intricate case law on the statutory procedures relevant to litigating actions in federal courts. The treatise concludes with an exploration of the important federalism problems inherent in our dual system of courts, and the interrelationship of federal and state courts. Focusing on the relevant statutes and Supreme Court and appellate doctrine, Understanding Federal Courts and Jurisdiction covers all aspects of federal jurisdiction: justiciability, including standing, mootness, ripeness, and political questions; and the major types of federal jurisdiction, federal question and diversity, as well as the supplemental jurisdiction statute. The procedural portion of the treatise covers removal, venue, transfer of venue, personal jurisdiction in the federal courts, and multidistrict litigation. The federalism discussion includes a coherent review of the abstention doctrines, the Anti-Injunction Act, the Eleventh Amendment, the Erie doctrine, and intersystem preclusion. Understanding Federal Courts and Jurisdiction is ideal for students in the basic procedure course as well as upper division federal jurisdiction and practice courses. It also provides new and experienced federal practitioners with the basic principles and solid basis for further research. This eBook features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.

Description : Johnny Dwyer examines the New York crimes we’ve seen in the news, in movies, and on television—drug trafficking, organized crime, terrorism, corruption, and white-collar crime—while weaving in the nuances that rarely make it into headlines. “Told in the kind of pointillist detail that can only come from years of hanging around the courthouse and doing old-school shoe-leather reporting.” —Patrick Radden Keefe, author of Say Nothing The Rosenbergs, Rudy Giuliani, Bernie Madoff, James Comey, John Gotti, Preet Bharara, and El Chapo are just a few of the figures to have appeared before the courts in the Southern and Eastern District of New York—the two federal courts tasked with maintaining order in New York City. These two epicenters of power in our justice system have become proving grounds for ambitious prosecutors who turn their service in government into power, position, and, in some cases, celebrity. These attorneys don’t hope for victory in court; they expect it. In The Districts, Johnny Dwyer takes us not just into the courtrooms but also into the lives of the judges and defendants, prosecutors and defense counsels, and winners and losers who people the courts. An unprecedented look at New York City’s federal court system that exposes the incentives driving how America chooses to punish crime—and what those choices reveal about our politics and our society—The Districts paints a revelatory picture of how our justice system, and the pursuit of justice, really works.

Description : "This first comprehensive plan for the future of the federal courts responds to a growing awareness within and without the courts that the accelerating pace of social change requires public institutions to anticipate likely future challenges and opportunities. The Constitution vests the federal courts with the judicial power of the United States, power which the courts are bound to exercise justly, speedily, and economically. To meet that responsibility, the courts must first and above all preserve the rule of law. At the same time, they must respond to the changing needs of society, litigants, and the practicing bar. The federal courts intend that this first plan, along with the planning process that it has initiated, will foster those two imperatives." -- p. 1.

Description : Clinton, Matasar, and Collins draw on their extensive litigation experience and scholarship to exquisitely interpret and clarify the complex, and sometimes unstable and incoherent, doctrines of federal courts jurisprudence. The authors blend a theoretical and practical approach. Having seen the Federalists vs. Antifederalists debates replay themselves daily in America's federal courtrooms, they believe the most practical knowledge of federal court doctrines frequently involves the most theoretical perspectives. Consequently, they pervasively favor broad assertions of federal judicial power -- a viewpoint they believe was the intent of the original Federalists -- and they use this viewpoint to challenge and stimulate students. This book begins with coverage of the basic structure, jurisdiction, and powers of the federal district courts; turns to constitutional litigation; and concludes with appellate jurisdiction.Highlights include:a thorough exploration of the original history (including excerpts from The Federalist)in-depth coverage of important landmarks of the Reconstruction Era, which granted federal courts power over many matters formerly left almost exclusively to state courtsa rich survey of the post-adoption evolution of federal courts doctrines. Excellent pedagogy: a contextual approach, a traditional organization, thoughtfully chosen cases, and copious and well-written notes.

Description : Federal judges and the journalists who cover them share an important goal: They want the public to receive accurate and understandable information about the federal courts and their work. The media perform an important and constitutionally protected role by informing and educating the public. The media also serve a time-honored role as the publicÕs watchdog over government institutions, including the courts. Likewise, courts uphold many of the legal protections that enable journalists to perform their jobs. A JournalistÕs Guide to the Federal Courts is intended to assist reporters who cover appellate, district, and bankruptcy courts Ð the cases, the people, and the process. It also offers basic information for journalists writing about the federal court system as a whole. The guide does not discuss the Supreme Court of the United States.

Description : Excerpt from The State Corporation as a Party in the Federal Courts In tracing this construction and drawing some conclusions and suggestions therefrom, I shall not take up the various judiciary and removal acts of Congress, for, though that body may endow the inferior Federal courts with less jurisdiction than the Constitution warrants, it can not rightfully bestow greater. From the formation of the State to the adoption of the National Constitution, Massachusetts chartered but one corporation (curtis's Jurisdiction, Ch. Judging by the history of that leading Commonwealth, the number of corporations in all the States when the Constitution was adopted did not equal the present daily average for Indiana. The inference is strong that the case of corporations as parties in non-federal litiga tion was not actually in the minds of the framers in formulating the judiciary article of the Constitution. Undoubtedly the use of the word person would have let in corporations, and that, too, within the common acceptation of the word at the time, and without creating a fiction or irrebuttable presumption. But the Constitution itself (and the Amendments) shows a careful and precise use of the words person and citizen. The President must be a citizen. Citizens are entitled to certain privileges and immunities. A person charged with treason. No person shall be held to answer. No person shall be deprived, etc. The Supreme Court has always held that a corporation is a person within those provisions of the Constitution in which the word person is employed. The Supreme Court has always held that a corporation is not a citizen within those provisions of the Constitution in which the word citizen is employed, except the section conferring jurisdiction on the Federal courts. Under that section it has never been held that a corporation is a citizen, but in some cases it has been said that a corpora tion, for the purposes of Federal jurisdiction, may be deemed to be a citizen.
