Author: by Bill Eddy
People with high conflict personalities (HCPs) clog our courts as plaintiffs with inappropriate claims against their personal “targets of blame,” and as defendants who have harmed others and need to be stopped. Everybody knows someone with a High Conflict Personality.
“How can he be so unreasonable?” “Why does she keep fighting? Can’t she see how destructive she is?” “Can you believe they’re going to court over _?”Some HCPs are more difficult than others, but they tend to share a similar preoccupation with blame that drives them into one dispute after anotherand keeps everyone perplexed about how to deal with them.
Using case examples and an analysis of the general litigation and negotiation behaviors of HCPs, this book helps make sense of the fears that drive people to file lawsuits and complaints. It provides insight for containing their behavior while managing and/or resolving their disputes.
Characteristics of the five “high-conflict” personality disorders are explored:BorderlineNarcissistic Histrionic ParanoidAntisocialBill Eddy is a lawyer, therapist, mediator, and President of the High Conflict Institute. He developed the “High Conflict Personality” theory and is an international expert on the subject.

9. Conviction Machine: Standing Up to Federal Prosecutorial Abuse
Author: by Harvey Silverglate
Published at: Encounter Books (February 18, 2020)
Prosecutors can indict a ham sandwich, we hear, and laugh at the absurdity. Yet the joke captures a truth: federal prosecutors wield enormous power over us all. And the federal criminal justice system is so stacked in favor of the government that shocking numbers of innocent people have been sent to prison.
In Conviction Machine, two leading authorities combine their knowledge and experience to describe the problems within the Department of Justice and in the federal courtsand to offer solutions. Both have already published books exposing flaws and abuses in the system.Harvey A.
Silverglate, a prominent criminal defense and civil liberties lawyer, showed that every one of us is vulnerable to criminal prosecution in Three Felonies a Day: How the Feds Target the Innocent. Sidney Powell, a former federal prosecutor in three districts under nine United States attorneys from both political parties and lead counsel in more than 500 federal appeals, witnessed appalling abuses by prosecutors that prompted her to write Licensed to Lie: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice.

16. Philosophical Foundations of the Law of Equity (Philosophical Foundations of Law)
Author: by Dennis Klimchuk
OUP Oxford (April 2, 2020)
April 2, 2020
The law of Equity, a latecomer to the field of private law theory, raises fundamental questions about the relationships between law and morality, the nature of rights, and the extent to which we are willing to compromise on the rule of law ideal to achieve social goals.
In this volume, leading scholars come together to address these and other questions about underlying principles of Equity and its relationship to the common law: What relationships, if any, are therebetween the legal, philosophical, and moral senses of ‘equity’? Does Equity form a second-order constraint on law?
If so, is its operation at odds with the rule of law? Do the various theories of Equity require some kind of separation of law and equity-and, if they do, what kind of separation? Thevolume further sheds light on some of the most topical questions of jurisprudence that are embedded in the debate around ‘fusion’.A noteworthy addition to the Philosophical Foundations series, this volume is an important contribution to an ongoing debate, and will be of value to students and scholars across the discipline.
