The Federal Rules of Civil Procedure originally made grudging provision for bills of particulars. In 1948 even that grudging provision was eliminated. I will make three inquiries: (1) whether recent decisions are not reviving bills of particulars, in form full-blown, although under another name; (2) whether such revival, if it is taking place, is warranted by the rules; and (3) whether it is a good or bad thing.
