The  following are the books that will be required reading for this class for the 2006 spring quarter.  This is the list provided to the Evergreen bookstore for ordering.  Our principal text will be the casebook, listed first below.  The 2005 Case Supplement provides cases and material to update the 4the edition of the Casebook. The law is constantly changing, of course, so supplements are necessary to ensure that our study of the law is current. Even the supplement must be updated with cases decided since it went to press.  We will do this with handouts.  Therefore, it is essental that you buy the appropriate books.   Neither the 3rd edition of the casebook nor the 2004 Case Supplement are adequate for our class; they are sorely out of date. The 5th edition will be published in April or May, but not in time for us to adopt it. However, the publisher will make available to me any new material included in the 5th edition, and I will distribute it through handouts as needed.
