A short and plain statment of the blog (via Southern Appeal)

Results from my "Which FRCP are you/": "YOU ARE RULE 8(a)! You are Rule 8, the most laid back of all the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. While your forefather in the Federal Rules may have been a stickler for details and particularity, you have clearly rebelled by being pleasant and easy-going. Rule 8 only requires that a plaintiff provide a short and plain statement of a claim on which a court can grant relief. While there is much to be lauded in your approach, your good nature sometimes gets you in trouble, and you often have to rely on your good friend, Rule 56, to bail you out"

It's nice to be a positive Rule. I had always thought of myself as a Rule 12 kind of guy until now. Maybe I should join the plaintiff's bar..
