Adopted at more than 70 law schools after its first year of publication, this supplementary text contains the litigation documents from Anderson v. Cryovac, the toxic tort case portrayed in the bestseller A Civil Action. Used in conjunction with Harr's book and any civil procedure casebook, A Documentary Companion to A Civil Action makes the first-year civil procedure class uniquely exciting and enlightening. The book can also serve as the sole text for an advanced litigation class. The authors have arranged documents from Anderson v. Cryovac topically to illustrate every phase of the litigation process, from notice to appeal. Their extensive notes and comments provide informative analysis of the legal, tactical, and ethical issues raised by the materials, as well as inside information about the case from extensive interviews with the lawyers. The book also presents thought-provoking questions to facilitate class discussion, as well as materials such as photographs, maps, newspaper articles, and excerpts from scientific reports.

From the introductions to A Documentary Companion to A Civil Action "A Civil Action and A Documentary Companion taken together offer...the fullest opportunity to render your own judgment about the merits of the case itself and how well or poorly the civil justice system dealt with it." Jonathan Harr, author of A Civil Action "You have the benefit of Jonathan Harr's brilliant portrayal in A Civil Action of the human drama of this litigation. You now have, thanks to the work of Professors Grossman and Vaughn, a unique opportunity to examine firsthand the legal implements we wielded. You can judge for yourself how effective they were in resolving that conflict." Jan Richard Schlictmann, attorney for the plaintiffsAbout the Author:
