My question involves court procedures for the state of: Arizona
I have a case where the Defendant is listing the affirmative defenses just in name with no substance of any kind. I've done some research on this and it appears such pleadings do not meet the pleading standards, but I want to get something a bit more solid than what I have. I was curious if anyone had additional information in support of punching through such lazy and improper statement of Affirmative Defenses. (i.e. they just state "estoppel" and nothing more).
Also, the Defendants refuse to answer the complaint with Admitted, Denied and Without Knowledge. All of their answers are convoluted word-play statements such as "Defendants acknowledge the purported statement in part, but deny the rest." etc.
I was hoping to receive some advice on dealing with this sort of garbage which really just convolutes the process.
