AALS on the 75th anniversary of the FRCP

At the annual meeting of the Association of American Law Schools (AALS), the highlight so far has been a spirited panel on the 75th anniversary of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. (Yes, I know that this statement may be yawn-inducing for those who are not court or procedure geeks.) The All-Star panel was moderated by legal legend Arthur Miller and included Justice Antonin Scalia.

I’ll post more when I have access to a computer (I’m blogging from the iPhone app). But for now suffice it to say that it was amazing to watch Miller and the panel skewer the court for some of its very questionable recent procedure decisions, particularly Iqbal (pleading).
