Civil Litigation Manual - Federal Judicial Center
The Civil Litigation Management Manual was prepared under the direction of the Committee on Court Administration and Case Management of the Judicial Conference. The manual was written for United States judges to help them secure “the just, speedy, and inexpensive determination of every action.” It is one more response to a need frequently expressed by judges—that is, to learn about the case management practices of other judges. Thus, the manual reflects, in its text and in the forms included in Appendix A, the varied experiences of district and magistrate judges. The discussion in the manual’s first six sections generally follows the chronology of a civil case.
The manual is translated within the framework of the “Rule of Law Partnership in Uzbekistan” project, which is a joint project of the Supreme Court of the Republic of Uzbekistan, United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and United Nations Development Programme.
