Successful Federal Appeals in All Circuit Courts

A Practical Guide for Busy Lawyers (3d ed. 2017)

Authored by Dorothy F. Easley
Edition: 3

The go-to resource for federal appellate practice. This is the third edition, with updated, expanded chapters of a one-of-a-kind federal appellate treatise. It incorporates significant rule changes and includes, by request, a new, additional chapter 15 with forms posted by each of the circuit court of appeals. This appellate treatise uniquely draws upon decades of a board certified appellate expert's actual experience and expertise, to help attorneys find the right rules and the pertinent law that they need for effective appellate briefing in all the federal circuit courts of appeals. If handling a federal appeal, from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit through the Eleventh Circuit, this book helps. This is an invaluable treatise for attorneys.

This resource is written by an eminently qualified twenty-plus-year board certified appellate specialist, to help busy attorneys work through the complex maze of federal appeals and the appellate rules and decisions. Everything matters in a federal appeal, from timing of certain forms and events to content to font. This treatise is organized to make that process easier. It describes, in chronological order, the steps necessary to timely advance and defend the appeal for each federal circuit court of appeals, to handle appeals in the First Circuit to the 11th Circuit, from start to finish. It also addresses issues concerning jurisdiction, finality and appealability of various orders, final appeals and extraordinary writs, how to compile and supplement the record on appeal and the appendixes, motion practice, hearing and rehearing en banc, effective appellate briefs and strategies for response and reply briefs, attorney fees, preservation of error in the lower court, and standards of appellate review.

A treatise of this kind is never "finished." As before, we again welcome suggestions for helpful materials and additional chapters to be included in the next edition.
