Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0899303773, Hardcover)

The procedures of summary judgment as well as other preclusive devices have been hailed by many as an effective solution to the current overload facing American courts. In addition to promising speed, these alternative methods also contribute to reduced legal and court costs. Freedman presents a comprehensive discussion of the major preclusive legal mechanisms, amply supported by relevant case law and decisions. The author not only describes the use of such devices in detail but also indicates the circumstances under which such actions are most likely to be successful.

Following an introduction, Freedman presents an in-depth treatment of the motion for summary judgment and adjudication without trial. A general chapter on accelerated judgments is followed by a detailed description of the declaratory judgment. Subsequent chapters explore the uses of various preclusive techniques including provisional remedies, requests for admission and other time-saving devices, intervention and interpleader, release-dismissal and settlement agreements, bifurcation, and the summary jury trial. A separate chapter is devoted to the preclusive doctrines of res judicata and collateral estoppel, while the concluding chapter discusses court sanctions for nonpreclusion. Taken as a whole, this is a cogent, well-documented exploration of the use of preclusive methods in contemporary litigation.
