James Damon had two good questions about pleading:
1) I have a simple question about the term "notice pleading." Is this the standard for all modern pleading? If not, what other modern standards of pleading currently exist?
2) I am somewhat curious as to the history of the rules for stating a claim. I know that the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure were adopted in 1938 (you said this in class), but I wonder whether this is primarily based on an older document/procedure/precedent.
