Oct. 30 Civil Procedure: Pleadings

Civil Procedure

We started talking about pleadings today. Pleadings are governed by FRCP 7(a). A pleading sets forth the facts and the parties’ claims on the facts. Pleadings set the framework of the proceeding and they include the complaint, answer, counterclaim, crossclaim, third-party complaint, and third-party answer. The parts of the pleading identifies the claims, the legal basis for the plaintiff’s claims, and the releif sought. I’ll post more on this later when I get a bit more under my belt.
