AN ESSENTIAL GUIDE FOR ALL MARYLAND PRACTITIONERS AND JUDGES—Pleading Causes of Action in Maryland, Sixth Edition is THE starting point for drafting and analyzing virtually all pleadings in Maryland. Sandler and Archibald’s practical organization of each chapter and section with a sample pleading immediately followed by their authoritative commentary of the elements of the claim and the issues to be considered, make this an exceptionally easy-to-use practitioner’s and judge’s tool. The authors’ analysis and advice help the reader develop an acute awareness of the strengths and weaknesses of a case, making this an invaluable reference manual.
EXPANSIVE SCOPE—The scope of the Sixth Edition is even more comprehensive than prior editions. While retaining its concise individual treatment of causes of actions—including citations to over 2,600 cases, 380 sections of the Maryland Code Annotated, and 200 provisions of the Maryland Rules, all meticulously catalogued in the Table of Cases and Table of Authorities, and carefully referenced to the elements of each sample pleading—it also discusses recent developments in the law and expands the table of statutory provisions related to attorney’s fees. Recent developments include developments for obtaining personal jurisdiction over parties, for piercing the corporate veil, and for bringing an action against state and local government entities. It adds and amends causes of action and model complaints based on statutory enactments and amendments and case law on various causes of action, such as in connection with foreclosure proceedings, mandamus proceedings and family law divorce and custody proceedings.
UP-TO-DATE—The Sixth Edition adds discussions of pertinent court decisions issued since the Fifth Edition by the Court of Appeals of Maryland, the Court of Special Appeals of Maryland, and the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, and is current as of December 31, 2017. While including discussions from prior editions, it picks up where the Fifth Edition left off. It examines and analyzes cases, statutes, treatises and other reference sources on Maryland law and pleading. Included is an updated chart of statutory provisions that provide for the award of attorney’s fees. It has been revised to address evolving requirements in various areas of practice, such as claims against government entities under the Maryland Tort Claims Act and Local Government Tort Claims Act, claims for protective orders in domestic cases, claims for workers compensation benefits, and claims under the Maryland Human Rights Act and local county ordinances governing human rights.
Paul Mark Sandler and James K. Archibald’s Pleading Causes of Action in Maryland, Sixth Edition is simply an indispensable addition to every Maryland lawyer’s and judge’s library.
