Documents Supplied to Court

are you in federal court?

he's referring to Rule 11 of the federal rules of civil procedure.

Rule 11. Signing Pleadings, Motions, and Other Papers; Representations to the Court; Sanctions

(a) Signature.

Every pleading, written motion, and other paper must be signed by at least one attorney of record in the attorney's name — or by a party personally if the party is unrepresented. The paper must state the signer's address, e-mail address, and telephone number. Unless a rule or statute specifically states otherwise, a pleading need not be verified or accompanied by an affidavit. The court must strike an unsigned paper unless the omission is promptly corrected after being called to the attorney's or party's attention.

I think you're fine as far as initial filing. If you try to get a default/summary judgment the rules will probably require you verify the facts and/or that there is no genuine issue as to any material fact.

I don't have any experience in federal court, so I may be wrong.
