Here are some interesting ones from the Uniform Chancery Court Rules.
- Two Rules that say the same thing?
RULE 2.03 NO BLANKS IN PLEADINGS
No blanks shall be contained in any pleading.
RULE 2.06 BLANKS IN PLEADINGS MUST BE FILLED IN
All blanks contained in any pleading must be properly filled in according to the fact or facts before being filed with the clerk or presented for consideration by the Court or Chancellor. If the pleader does not know, and is unable to learn, the necessary fact or facts to enable him to fill in such blanks accurately, he must so state in his pleading.
2. Demurrers? We got rid of demurrers in the 1980’s.
RULE 2.10 TRIAL NOT DELAYED BECAUSE DEMURRER IS OVERRULED
The complainant shall not be delayed of a trial in any case because a demurrer is overruled. If, in such a case, the defendant has failed to file his answer with his demurrer he shall, if the complainant so insists, be required to answer within such time as will not delay the trial beyond the term.
Does anyone know what a demurrer is?
