Charles Alan Wright's preeminent treatise, Federal Practice and Procedure, is both an eloquent testament to his capacious intellect and an enduring legacy of the brilliant scholar. Indeed, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg recently characterized Professor Wright as a "Colossus [who] stands at the summit of our profession" and declared that "all who practice the lawyer's craft profit from his prodigious production." She also praised the 54-volume compendium as "by far the most-cited treatise in the United States Reports [and] the procedural Bible for federal judges and those who practice in our federal courts."
