This 584-page book describes techniques and procedures that trial judges have found to be successful in managing complex cases. It also analyzes practices that have caused difficulties. It includes a number of forms that have been used by U.S. district judges.  

You can download the document by RIGHT clicking below, selecting "Save Target As" and saving the manual to your hard disk and then opening it locally:  The local server is a low bandwidth (<1 Mbyte/sec) and very busy website so PLEASE(!) be a good network citizen by both using the FAST MIRROR SITE and  saving your copy of the file on your local hard drive as indicated above, rather than left-clicking directly on the file, as this needlessly hogs precious bandwidth on this server that other people need in order to access this document and other parts of the site.
