Title: Civil Procedure
Author: Weninger, Robert A.
Abstract: The Fifth Circuit's decisions in the area of federal civil procedure dealt with a variety of familiar topics, such as pretrial motions and pleadings, summary judgment, class actions, trial procedure, and appeals, to name but a few. However, because cases involving these matters have often been discussed in recent issues of the Survey, this year's article focuses on significant decisions in the area of personal and subject matter jurisdiction, particularly the proper sequencing of rulings on challenges to these two kinds of jurisdiction, the assertion of specific and general jurisdiction, the assertion of personal jurisdiction over a nonresident defendant who operates an Internet website without other contacts in the forum, and the doctrine of forum non conveniens.
