Acknowledgements: I undertook this project in the summer of 2013 with the hope of helping students avoid the high costs of textbooks, generating content that could be used and improved upon by others, and tailoring my materials to my own needs. I hope you will enjoy and disseminate it widely. This project is a team one and many people deserve credit. First, the H20 team for helping to create this product and teach me to use it: Dustin Lewis, Emily Ellis, Matthew McKay‎ and Shailin Thomas. Second, my team of RAs/TAs who helped me edit materials, generate new content, etc. They are: Jerry Cedrone, Jeremy Feigenbaum, Laura Myron, Ashwin Phatak, and Veronic Sauer. Finally, I thank my colleague Bill Rubenstein for letting me adapt some of the content he uses in his course.

          Original Creator: I. Glenn Cohen
          Did the statute in Doehr die after the Supreme Court decision? Not quite….This case involved a fight between a homeowner and contractor hired to do repairs. When the homeowner was not happy with the quality of the work he would not pay. The contractor retaliated by getting an ex part prejudgment attachment of the owner's home. While that state case was pending, the homeowner sued in FEDERAL court to block the application of the attachment statute as unconstitutional after Doehr. How did the Third Circuit court of appeals rule? Was this case distinguishable?
