Wilson Among Co-Authors of Eighth Circuit Appellate Practice Manual

Benjamin Wilson has co-authored a chapter in the new Eighth Circuit Appellate Practice Manual, 8th edition. Wilson’s contribution is Chapter 21 - Costs on Appeal, which he co-authored with the Hon. Mary R. Vasaly, Fourth Judicial District Court in Hennepin County, Minnesota.

The Eighth Circuit Appellate Practice Manual is designed to be a primary resource for attorneys representing clients in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. Written with an eye for comprehensiveness and edited to serve as a quick reference tool, the manual’s chapters trace the breadth of Eighth Circuit action—from basics like office locations and biographies of current judges to more involved issues regarding specific types of appeals—and is supplemented throughout with forms, checklists, and practice tips gained from the authors’ unparalleled experience on both sides of the bench. In addition, it features the Eighth Circuit Local Rules and Internal Operating Procedures, as well as a newly updated comprehensive subject index and table of authorities. The manual is scheduled for publication in March 2018 and is available for pre-order from Minnesota CLE. More information can be found here:
