what does failure to state .....

Recommended Posts

In layman terms what is failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted, and what does it mean?


Basically it's a 'standard' defense in a lawsuit.

It means 'the plaintiff hasn't articulated the facts or allegations in the Complaint well enough. Also, a complaint challenged as not being supported by a reading of the law to impose a duty upon the defendant can be said it fails to state a claim.

There's plenty on info on htis term. Try Googling it and see what pops up :p
