Beginning with an overview of the federal court system and the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Federal Civil Practice explains in a practical way the interplay of Massachusetts and federal rules. The work addresses related areas, such as:

    • Jurisdiction

    • Venue

    • The case-or-controversy doctrine

    • Abstention

    • Determination of law

    • The effects of former adjudication

It also provides an overview of the federal district court judicial process, a step-by-step approach to the stages of civil litigation, and a rule-by-rule analysis of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and corresponding local rules. The text includes the Local Rules of the U.S. District Court of Massachusetts, the Rules for the U.S. Magistrate in the District Court, and selected forms for use in the federal courts.
