Consolidation of Preliminary Motions and Demurrers in Connecticut, 22 Yale Law Journal 302 (1913)
The abolishment of demurrers by the new equity rules of the
Federal Court and by the recent Practice Act of the Law Courts
of New Jersey makes pertinent the question whether Connecticut
may not to her advantage amend her practice to conform to that
of those two jurisdictions and that of the English Courts. The
Connecticut State Bar Association has already gone on record as
favoring the adoption of a rule which should compel a party to
embody in one document a motion to expunge and a demurrer,.
where the motion and demurrer are addressed to the same pleading,
whether the moving party claims both forms of relief or
"whether he is experimenting to ascertain what is the proper form
of relief to which he is entitled."
