For Monday--Section A

Friday audio. Essay I available outside my office. Essay II will be distributed next Friday (2/10) and due on Wednesday (2/15).

We continue with Twiqbal. Why were the non-conclusory allegations (about the disparate racial/religious/nationality impact) in Iqbal not sufficient? Be ready to analyze the sufficiency of our sample complaints. What is the argument that there is something unique about Twombly and Iqbal, that required a slightly different pleading analysis? What does Johnson say about the stringency of Twiqbal?

We then should move on to Answers and Affirmative Defenses. For Monday, prepare FRCP 8(b) and (c) and FRCP 12(b) and (c), and Zielinski. Look at the Answer in Kinsman v. Winston (posted to the blog--disregard Spooner).
