Federal Civil Procedure Chart
Use this flowchart guide from the inception of a case to navigate through pleading issues, motion practice, discovery disputes and to help you prepare for trial or deal with post-trial motions.
- In “Step One” you are prompted to consider “who,” “what,” “when,” and “where” issues such as subject matter jurisdiction, venue, statutes of limitation and party considerations.
- In “Step Two” the attention turns to litigating the case before trial i.e. pleading, removal and discovery practice.
- The focus in “Step Three” is summary judgment practice where many cases in federal court are decided. The attention in “Step Four” turns to trial-related procedures including pre-trial considerations and post-trial motions.
