Worst Casebook?

Worst Casebook?

The quality of a casebook directly impacts our experience in a class.  What's the worst you've ever dealt with?

My vote goes to Constitutional Law by Stone, Seidman, et al.  Published by Aspen Publishing.

The cases are horribly edited and the note don't seem to connect to anything.  I've found multiple spots in the book where entire paragraphs are in-line cites.  Completely unreadable.

Wow just from the headline worst casebook I was going to point to the exact one that you mentioned.

Not to mention that reading 3 pages where every sentence ends with a question mark gets pretty annoying.

Environmental Regulation: Law, Science and Policy[/i] by Percival & Miller. This thing reads like a social studies book and after getting so used to case books I have no idea what to make of it. I'm half way through the semester and I don't even know what the hell the environment is.
