Abstract

Summarizes both reported and unreported Fifth Circuit cases that addressed procedural issues during the survey period of June 1, 2007 to May 31, 2008. For the convenience of the reader, the cases are organized by which rule of civil procedure is addressed, with earlier rules summarized first. Most of the summaries contain a brief factual background and the legal reasoning used to arrive at the court's conclusion on issues interpreting the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure or other procedural issues, such as subject matter jurisdiction, removal/remand, and the Rooker-Feldman doctrine.
