The 54 paragraphs of the statement of claim, which the plaintiffs prepared themselves, is long on indignation but somewhat short on respect for the rules of pleading. There are repetitive allegations, convoluted paragraphs with multiple allegations, references to evidence as opposed to material facts and poorly described causes of action. Dissecting the wording of the claim has been a considerable challenge, as I am sure it was for the defendants and their counsel.
