Summary Judgment

This lesson has been revised to reflect the December 1, 2006 amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, as they were re-written effective December 1, 2007.

The student is asked to decide summary judgment motions on a claim for defamation and a counterclaim for battery. After requiring the student to explore and apply the fundamental concepts of summary judgment, such as what constitutes a genuine issue, the exercise moves into more difficult problems based on court interpretations of Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 56.
