During the past quarter century, most of the individual rules of the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure (FRAP) have been amended to account for new laws, case-law development, practices, and technology. New provisions and rules were also added addressing privacy concerns arising from electronic case filings made publicly available on the internet, citation of unpublished court opinions, electronic means of service, filing of cross-appeals, computation of time periods, entry of judgment, and corporate disclosure requirements. The Federal Appellate Procedure Manual offers a convenient, up-to-date reference source for both new and experienced practitioners that provides unique insights into FRAP and appellate practice from authors who shared first-hand experience in the rulemaking process. The Manual begins with several sections on the jurisdiction of courts of appeals; focusing on the final-decision doctrine. The remaining sections concentrate on FRAP rules that deal with civil cases, excluding for the most part consideration of habeas corpus, administrative agency decisions, Tax Court rulings, and criminal cases. The Manual highlights key passages in the FRAP Committee Notes most pertinent to understanding the rules. The copious citations to very recent case law throughout the Manual account for the many amendments and new FRAP rules and evolving case-law jurisprudence.2013); Chamberlan v.
