Do these names ring a bell? Pleas, pleas, etc. I am sure you have seen it more than once in court documents. Well, they are a little more complex than they look. We explained that to you in this article. It would be similar to what we call the explanation or appointment phase of a civil trial. Although these terms are more academic and are not often used in procedural jargon. On the other hand, we have also said that this name, briefs, gives its name to the documents that are usually filed in court at this stage of the proceedings. But in a legal context, this can mean two things: Ms. Harrison has entered a plea for not guilty. In this context, it is customary to find expressions such as pleadings (or pleas-negotiations/plea agreements) that relate to the conviction agreement normally reached with the prosecutor, so that the convict, if he admits some of his guilt, is charged with a lower sentence. Finally, we will explain the non-one argument, which usually appears more often in plural writing.
The request for filing documents in this initial phase (pleas) is generally more or less so: 1) In the criminal proceedings, it is the defendant`s response to the charges against him. This is when he is asked in court how to plead (how do you plead?) and the accused answers „guilty“ or „innocent“. The accused may also give an unanswered statement (I do not contest [the charge]), even plead or Nolo asserts that he decides, without admitting the facts or the responsibility, not to oppose the charge which will convict him safely, but which may benefit him if there has been a civil detention proceeding following the same facts. 2. In the civil proceedings, the defendant`s defences are referred to the complaint or other motions of the other party before the Tribunal. In accordance with the above, the word (too much) of plea is used to express these acts: we can translate it into a statement or a charge of innocence or guilty plea. Here is an example: there should be no difference between man and man when it comes to the fact that one is rich and the other poor. As the Cornell Law Institute (here) and the American Bar Association Page (here) explain very well, the plea for the initial phase of the civil proceedings, in which the parties file their claims and their defenses.
