The Sanders Firm, P.C.: Sufficiency of Pleadings Defense

When we represent a client in a civil rights case The Sanders Firm, P.C. in New York City works very carefully to help negate a possible sufficiency of pleadings defense. As a plaintiff, you want to be assured that your civil rights lawsuit has the best chance possible of being heard. That means when your lawsuit is filed with and reviewed by the court, The Sanders Firm, P.C. is determined that the allegations you assert will be presented in the strongest manner possible.

Sufficiency of Pleadings Defense

The sufficiency of pleadings defense goes to the heart of your civil rights lawsuit. Within the context of this defense, allegations made in a lawsuit must be supported by enough facts in order for the court to determine if your rights have been violated. This is assuming that the allegations are entirely true. Thus, it has nothing to do with the veracity of the claim. Sufficiency of pleadings has more to do with having enough specific information in the document in order for the court to accept your pleadings. If there is not sufficiency of pleadings, your case can be dismissed by the court before it is heard by a jury.

Process is Important

The Sanders Firm, P.C., which offers representation to those in the New York City area, understands how important process is when creating the paper work that offers your pleadings in your civil rights complaint. Along with process, understanding past court decisions and how they may affect your civil rights suit and determining prior to the filing of your paperwork if the defendant might have grounds to question the sufficiency of pleadings in your lawsuit are both important aspects of the process.

The dilemma for those filing a lawsuit is that the judge decides the merits of your case and not the jury, and this occurs before it ever has a chance to be heard by a jury. Thus, creating a strong case in your pleadings is very important to getting your case heard by a jury and not just reviewed and then dismissed by a judge.
