Documents and Papers from a Court : Motion for More Definite Statement

What is a Motion for More Definite Statement?
A Motion for More Definite Statement asks the Court to order another party to clarify its statements or allegations because their claims are so vague or ambiguous that the party making the Motion cannot reasonably frame a response.

Check with the rules of your local court to see if there are specific rules to follow when filing this motion. Once a Motion for More Definite Statement is filed, the other party has 14 days to file a response. If a response is not filed by the deadline, the Motion will be granted and the claims will be dismissed. If a timely response is filed, the Court might grant the Motion for a More Definite Statement and order the party to provide a more specific statement of claims.
