Zimmerman's Research Guide



I've found very little on receivership specifically. The leading treatise was Ralph Ewing Clark's Treatise on the Law and Practice of Receivers 3d ("Clark on Receivers"), which has been reprinted by W.S. Hein & Co., but has not been updated since the 1968-69 supplement.

For more recent information, volume 16 of Fletcher Cyclopedia Corporations discusses receivers. So do the legal encyclopedias American Jurisprudence (Am Jur) and Corpus Juris Secundum (CJS). The Trigild Guide to Receivership and Foreclosure, available on request from Stephanie.Cadirci@trigild.com, summarizes the receivership laws of the 50 states and the U.S. Federal government. The West Key Number system has a section on Receivers. Chapter 66 of Moore's Federal Practice discusses the special Federal rules for Receivers.

For additional resources, look through materials on liquidation, bankruptcy, corporations, equity and mortgage foreclosures that mention receivers. If you subscribe, you might also want to check Indexmaster.
