In Federal Court the standard pleading standards were shifted by the cases of Iqbal and Twombly. What this means is that when you file a Complaint about someone, there has to be some basis for it. In other words, the problem had to have occurred before. I have not read the law in a year or so before I argued the case before the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. Their decision, based on the Supreme Court cases, was that it had to have happened before, and there is no such thing as a case of first impression anymore. I disagree with the rulings.
