You Call This Concise?


After receiving a 143 paragraph petition, I had to check the rules again for Form of Pleadings. Maryland Rule 2-303(b) says:

Each averment of a pleading shall be simple, concise, and direct. No technical forms of pleadings are required. A pleading shall contain only such statements of fact as may be necessary to show the pleader’s entitlement to relief or ground of defense. It shall not include argument, unnecessary recitals of law, evidence, or documents or any immaterial, impertinent, or scandalous material.

That’s what I thought it said.
