To do this, review FRCP Rule 8, General Rules of Pleading. It includes Claims for Relief, Defenses (Admissions and Denials) and Affirmative Defenses. Rule 8 also instructs you to make your pleadings concise, consistent and direct. 4 Know the format for your pleading. A pleading must contain a caption with the court's name, title of the pleading, a file number (usually the case number) and a Rule 7(a) designation. The Rule 7(a) designation will determine what type of pleading you are drafting, i.e. a complaint, answer to a complaint, counterclaim, cross-claim and other information. Name all of the parties in the title of the pleading. Review Rule 10 of the FRCP for more on the format of pleadings. 5 Draft the preamble to the pleading, then state your claims (or defenses, if you are answering a complaint) in numbered paragraphs. Each paragraph should have a single circumstance. If there is more than one count, each count should have its own section. 6 Label all exhibits to be included with the pleading. Exhibits are normally labeled as "Exhibit A," Exhibit B" and so on. Refer to the exhibits in your pleading after stating the exhibit, in this manner: "The Plaintiff filed a complaint on or about [date]. ] ]
