West Publishing has just released the 2010 updated works of MULTIDISTRICT LITIGATION MANUAL (2010)
and ANNOTATED MANUAL FOR COMPLEX LITIGATION FOURTH (2010)
authored by David Herr. David is a member of Maslon's Litigation Practice Group and head of its Appellate Group.
MULTIDISTRICT LITIGATION MANUAL covers the increasing role of the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation and provides attorneys with guidance when facing a potential transfer of a case to the Panel and answers as many of the practical questions that arise from a transfer.
The extensive ANNOTATED MANUAL FOR COMPLEX LITIGATION provides attorneys and judges with detailed guidance on the management of complex litigation, analyzing cases that construe Federal Judicial Center Manual provisions. It examines case management techniques, including issues of class action, certification, mass torts, and the power of the Panel on Multidistrict Litigation to transfer cases. It includes numerous state cases and related developments and is convenient for those judges and litigators who typically have no state-specific publication to guide them in complex litigation.
