When in doubt, read the rules. In this Litigation Fundamentals segment, Henry M. Quillian III concentrates on some of the distinctions between going under the civil practice act and operating in the federal courts under the federal rules of civil procedure both with respect to local rules and with respect to federal rules of civil procedure versus the civil practice act. This is with the goal of not making mistakes in one court or another based on the presumption that something is the same when in fact it is not, and sometimes you have very material differences in the outcome. Donald P. Boyle Jr. makes a guest appearance on the issue of restrictions on amendment to pleadings.
