WSLL Recommends: Elements of an Action

Elements of an Action is a single, unobtrusive volume in the larger set of green Wisconsin Practice Series books on our shelves. Professor Jay E. Grenig with Marquette University Law School writes this book. 

The 2014-2015 edition has seventeen chapters devoted to frequently litigated civil causes of action. Each chapter is broken into a survey of statutory and other elements underpinning the action, statutes of limitations, claims, remedies, and defenses. References to Wisconsin Jury Instructions and jury verdicts are included as well as additional case studies for many chapters. Each action includes example forms and other documents from recent Wisconsin court cases.

Turn to Elements of an Action for a concise resource for any of these areas:
  • Abuse of process
  • Animal actions – damage caused by dog
  • Contract actions – breach of contract, unjust enrichment, and quantum meruit
  • Defamation
  • Emotion distress
  • False imprisonment
  • Insurance – bad faith
  • Legal malpractice
  • Local government tort liability
  • Medical malpractice – negligence
  • Motor vehicles – negligence
  • Nuisance – public nuisance
  • Possession of real property
  • Products liability
  • Safe place
  • Tortious interference with contract
  • Wrongful death
