Many sources describe the general badness of procedural systems that predated the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure but few describe how those systems actually worked. This essay — intended as a reference for law students, law professors, and anyone else required to read and make sense of archaic judicial opinions — does just that.

Keywords: civil procedure, arcana
