    Definitely Not a Replacement for Rutters, April 15, 2013

    This review is from: O’Connor’s California Practice * Civil Pretrial 2012 (Paperback)

    Bought as a lightweight desk reference so I wouldn’t have to go the Rutters Civil Procedure Before Trial series. Well, that was an idea that crashed on the shores of reality. It really is very simple in analysis. I’d go as far as suggest it is black letter in analysis. If you have an online database to access, it works better than this book.

    If you don’t have Rutter’s and can’t afford the series, this book is a basic primer. I think I have opened it 7-8 times since purchasing nearly 8 months ago. Back to paying for the updates re Rutters!
