Abstract

This treatise provides a concise, accessible, comprehensive overview of the doctrine, policy, and theory of civil rights and constitutional litigation under § 1983 and its Bivens federal counterpart. The book is written to function as an assigned or recommended supplement to a casebook or case materials, as a statutory supplement to a casebook or case materials, and as an additional study guide for students wanting additional background, context, and synthesis in courses on Civil Rights Litigation and Federal Courts.

The book covers all aspects of civil rights and constitutional litigation under Bivens and § 1983. It also includes short problems drawn from lower-court decisions for use in class discussions or student study and review. And it can function as a statutory supplement, with appendices containing the Constitution of the United States and selected federal statutes.
