Fact Pleading

 A system of [wex:pleading] requirements that mandates that submissions to the court, like [wex:complaint|complaints] and [wex:answer|answers], include all the facts needed to back up their allegations.  Fact pleading is no longer used in the federal system, but is still used in some states.  
 
Contrast with [wex:notice pleading].
