Abstract

This is what it purports to be: a Seussian take on civil procedure. It’s a short, fun essay that covers (1) the iron triangle of civil procedure - the role of lawyers, judges, and juries, and (2) prominent civil procedure doctrines, such as personal jurisdiction, Erie, pleading, discovery, and joinder.

Keywords: Dr. Seuss, civil procedure, Bell Atlantic v. Twombly, Iqbal, judges, juries, personal jurisdiction, Erie, pleading, discovery, joinder, preclusion, Horton, Zax, Circus, Sneetch, pale green pants, Hanna v. Plumer
