A Civil Action by Harr. You may even enjoy it.
Bill, I just finished reading that book, and WOW!
I loved it, by which I mean I am pissed off and very disturbed. I went into it carte blanche as well, never saw the movie, and had no idea of the outcome, believe it or not.
I'm 0L, but I'd think that book at least gives some good idea about civil procedure
