The Seventh Edition of Pleading Causes of Action in Maryland, written by Paul Mark Sandler, Esq., James K. Archibald, Esq., and Eleanor T. Chung, Esq., is now available for purchase in hardcover and digital form. The book will likely ship in late August or early September. 

Pleading Causes of Action in Maryland is the essential guide for Maryland litigators, providing not only concise individual treatment of causes of actions and sample pleadings but also discussions on recent developments in the law, including two new causes of action: breach of fiduciary duty and intentional interference with an inheritance or gift.  

The chapters include sample pleadings followed by authoritative commentary on the elements of the claim and the issues to be considered, as well as an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of a case, making this a comprehensive and easy-to-use reference manual.

The Seventh Edition provides more comprehensive information than prior editions, including an analysis of the nearly 200 pertinent court decisions issued since the Sixth Edition by the Court of Appeals of Maryland, the Court of Special Appeals of Maryland, and the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland, as well as discussions from prior editions.  In total, it cites over 2,600 cases, 380 sections of the Maryland Code Annotated, and 200 provisions of the Maryland Rules.

The Seventh Edition includes two new chapters: Complaints to Enforce Arbitration and Interpleader. The authors updated the complaints in the book to reflect the great diversity of the Maryland bar as well.
