New from the FJC History Office

The History Office of the Federal Judicial Center is out with two new websites.  The first, Cases that Shaped the Federal Courts, groups the Office’s case summaries, discussion questions, and excerpted documents in relation to various topics: Defining the Judiciary; Federal Jurisdiction; Federalism; Habeas Corpus; Judicial Independence; Judicial Review; Justiciability; Non-Adjudicatory Roles of Federal Judges; and Remedies.  The second is a series of essays on the history of the Rules of Practice and Procedure in the Federal Courts.
