Decent and Concise but Contains Errors
September 11, 2015
Decent and concise overview of the law. However, there are grammatical errors throughout some of which make the outline misleading. For example lets take the section discussing supplemental jurisdiction. The book lists 4 factors for when a "federal district court has discretion to exercise supplemental jurisdiction." However if you look at 28 U.S. Code § 1367 - those factors relate to when "The district courts may decline to exercise supplemental jurisdiction..." Factor 4 makes that clear - "In exceptional circumstances, there are other compelling reasons for declining jurisdiction."
