Abstract

This brief is written on behalf of a group of law professors who teach and write in the areas of Civil Procedure and Federal Courts. See Appendix (listing amici). Although we conclude that respondents have adequately pled a claim upon which relief can be granted, our principal focus is not on the merits of this case, but on the procedural standards used to assess the legal sufficiency of a pleading. Our goal is to promote a coherent and workable system of pleadings that is consistent with the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and with this Court’s precedents interpreting those rules.
