RULE CRLJ 10 FORM OF PLEADINGS (a) Caption; Names of Parties. Every written pleading shall contain a caption setting forth the name of the court, the title of the action, the file number if known to the person signing it, and a designation as in rule 7(a).

(b) Adoption by Reference; Exhibits. Statements in a pleading may be adopted by reference in a different part of the same pleading or in another pleading or in any motion. A copy of any written instrument which is an exhibit to a pleading is a part thereof for all purposes. (c) Form. The requirements for pleadings, motions, and other papers are as specified in GR 14, except exhibits and forms approved by the Office of the Administrator for the Courts need not be on letter-size paper (8-1/2 by 11 inches). (d) Personal Identifiers Prohibited. [Reserved. See GR 31(e).] (e) Unpublished Opinions. [Reserved. See GR 14.1.] [Amended effective September 1, 1990; September 1, 2000; September 1, 2007.]
