This coursebook explores both the practical and substantive aspects of Texas civil pre-trial litigation. The materials cover all aspects of the processing of a civil case up to the period immediately before trial. It addresses such issues as: • The attorney's relationship with the client (when to take a case, forming the contract, Interviewing and counseling the client); • When to file the suit (statutes of limitation and other pre-filing requirements); • Protecting the right to recover (emergency relief such as TROs, sequestration, garnishment, and attachment); • Deciding where to file the case (subject matter jurisdiction, personal jurisdiction, and venue); • Defining and shaping the case (pleading practices, joinder, and preclusion doctrines) • Obtaining relevant Information (scope of discovery and discovery devices); and • Non-trial resolutions (default, summary judgment, settlement, and alternative dispute resolution). All of the chapters have been updated to include new cases and changes in rules and statutes. In addition to cases and supplemental notes, Texas Civil Procedure: Pre-Trial Litigation, 2015-2016 Edition includes sample pleadings and other documents to help students understand and apply the procedural rules. The text also includes thirty sets of Practice Exercises; hypothetical problems that walk students through the application of the rules in increasingly complex situations. Professors adopting the book will be provided with suggested answers to the Practice Exercises. New eBook editions of this book will be issued each year. The eBook versions of this title feature links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.

Judicial Ethics

Judicial ethics is a surprisingly underexplored area and this volume marks an important point in this relatively new but commendably growing field of studies. The areas covered range from the metaethics of decision and how this impacts the judiciary to the ethical evaluation of the substance and procedure of a decision and codes of judicial conduct. Addressing each of these meanings and more, this collection brings together for the first time many, if not most, of the 'canons' (or soon-to-be 'canons') of modern judicial ethics scholarship. The previously published articles have created new interdisciplinary, historical, cultural and doctrinal understandings of judicial character, conduct, regulation and development, and bringing them together in one volume provides readers with the opportunity to review the field more readily and comprehensively.

As a litigator, you spare no time or expense to ensure you are at peak readiness when the trial rolls around. You know you must do your homework to win cases -- thoroughly research the legal issues, draft pleadings, conduct pretrial discovery, prepare witnesses. So don't let all your hard work go to waste by forgetting the most important player in the courtroom -- the judge. You will find the judges' courtroom preferences -- in his or her own words. Each judge provides insight into trial scheduling, motion practice, pretrial and trial procedures, decorum, pet peeves, and much more. The North Texas Bench Book features sections for judges in Denton, Ennis, Johnson Kaufman, Rockwall, Tarrant in addition to Dallas and Collin Counties. The book will be especially helpful to new attorneys and those who have not practiced in a particular Court before. It also provides seasoned attorneys with updates on each Court's procedures. The volume is arranged by court divisions. The first page of each section lists all judges with their address, floor or suite number and phone number. A table of judges with names and pages on which the judge appears in the Bench Book is found after the table of contents. Local rules for civil courts appear at the front of the Dallas County Courts at Law -- Civil section. Please note that these rules also apply to Dallas County Civil District Courts. Finally, an alphabetical index is in the back of the book. The answers to the questionnaires were provided by the individual judges and were not subjected to substantive editing.
