I have NO idea what they're talking about.

Anyone???

Rule 8(a). General Rules of Pleadings
General Rules of Pleadings
Claims for Relief. A pleading which sets forth a claim for relief, whether
an original claim, counterclaim, cross-claim, or third-party claim shall contain

(1) a short and plain statement of the grounds upon which the court's
jurisdiction depends, unless the court already has jurisdiction and the
claim needs no new grounds of jurisdiction to support it,

(2) a short and plain statement of the claim showing that the pleader is
entitled to relief, and

(3) a demand for judgment for the relief to which he deems himself
entitled. Relief in the alternative or of several different types may be
demanded.


Here is their sample, if it got any less specific, it would be a blank page:

"COMPLAINT

Jurisdiction
(Separate Paragraph)

Complaint
(Separate Paragraph(s))
COMPLAINT MUST COMPLY WITH RULE 8(a)
(A copy of the rule is attached)

Demand
(Separate Paragraph)

Dated: (YOUR SIGNATURE IN INK)
Your name typed or printed
Address
Telephone Number"

Maybe this is too complicated for me after all.

Maybe I'll have to move to a State where they actually provide some USEFUL information?
