Kaplow on Multistage Litigation

Professor Louis Kaplow (Harvard) has posted an article entitled Multistage Litigation on SSRN.  Here is the abstract:

Legal proceedings often involve multiple stages: U.S. civil litigation allows motions to dismiss and for summary judgment before reaching a trial; government agencies as well as prosecutors employ investigative and screening processes before initiating formal adjudication; and many Continental tribunals move forward sequentially. Decisionmaking criteria have proved controversial, as indicated by reactions to the Supreme Court’s recent decisions in Twombly and Lqbal and its 1986 summary judgment trilogy, which together implicate the four Supreme Court cases most cited by federal courts. Neither jurists nor commentators have articulated coherent, noncircular legal standards, and no attempt has been made to examine systematically how decisions at different procedural stages should ideally be made in light of the legal system’s objectives. This Article presents a foundational analysis of the subject. The investigation illuminates central elements of legal system design, recasts existing debates about decision standards, identifies pathways for reform, and provides new perspectives on the nature of facts and evidence and on the relationship between substantive and procedural law.

The article may be downloaded by visiting http://ssrn.com/abstract=2154683.

As someone who is not very knowledgeable of civil litigation, I found your blog to be very helpful (I stumbled upon this while looking into civil litigation lawyers in California). Thanks for the post!

That is the problem with our country.There are so many young people who really want to get their Higher Education diploma, but unfortunately due to many reasons they cannot afford it. Is there any solution? I doubt that there is one at this point. Would have been nice if more grants were at least available for talented kids advanced-writer.com. Or maybe good discounts for them. In any case, something that would allow them to study!

This is an evolutionary strategy game that pits you against alien invaders. You begin the game in the Stone Age, with just a base and some money. Select your base to view the available building options and spend your money wisely. Buy buildings that will spawn offensive units and gatherers, as well as turrets to bolster your defenses. You can upgrade your buildings so that they produce more effective units and spawn them at a faster rate.
