Page 33 – “Justice Francis W. Sullivan, at the summer meeting at the Samoset, Wednesday morning, August 29, 1956 was asked to speak on Pleading and Practice. There was indeed a lively interest in changing the common law pleadings and procedure. The younger members of the Bar had had virtually no training in common law procedure. Most law schools did not offer a course in it.”

Justice Sullivan states “The Institute of Judicial Administration had found seven common law states – Florida, Virginia, West Virginia, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.”

P. 33 – The Maine Bar admits “the younger members of the Bar had virtually no training in common law procedure.”
Maine is listed as a common law state.

P. 37 – The Maine Bar admits “a radical change taken place with respect to a fundamental body of learning, the old learning in common law pleading cast away and an entirely new system replacing it.”

P. 36- Maine Rules of Civil Procedure replaced common law pleadings.

This state cannot “cast away” the law due to the ignorance, uneducated attorneys.
