Rule 8 & 12

Postby splittermcsplit88 » Tue Dec 04, 2012 12:54 am

Regarding FRCP Rule 8 and 12, if a complaint states mere conclusions saying "he harmed me," "he had intent," "he made physical contact," it is factually insufficient. But, is it also legally insufficient?

Yep—not plausible under Twombly/Iqbal. Unless of course it's one of the forms...

What do you mean by unless it's one of the forms?

Forms 11/15 which are by definition sufficient to withstand a 12b6
