Crazy Rules

I’ve been practicing for over 30 years.  I thought we had done away with “demurers”.  Not in Chancery Court.

Uniform Chancery Court Rules

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.

It’s time to delete this Rule.
