This is a court of record.

The rules adopted by this court are the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure as amended to May 1, 1995 (West Publishing Co.), and the guidelines applicable therein.

William Jones, plaintiff, accuses Mary Smith, a minor and defendant, of a plea of trespass: For that the said defendant, on October 8, 1997, was licensed to operate, and did operate a 1994 Ford Tempo registered to co-defendant ROBERT SMITH, her father, and failed to yield the right-of-way on Main Street northbound in the county aforesaid, and contrary to the laws of this state, thus striking the said plaintiff while he was riding his bicycle on Highland eastbound, thus injuring him severely and causing him to be transported by ambulance to hospital and treated for his injuries, being released the following day. On December 19, 1997 surgery was performed on plaintiff's shoulder. For the next several months plaintiff underwent physical therapy that was most excruciating. The surgery performed on plaintiff has failed to remedy his condition, is still painful, and the subject left shoulder has begun to migrate down from its normal position. Defendant, by her wrongful acts against the peace of the people of this state, has permanently damaged plaintiff in the amount of $1,000,000.00 in general damages, and $2,000,000.00 in special damages, thus affecting his ability to earn a living and live a normal life, and therefore he brings his suit.

I hereby declare that I have accurately stated the above facts as I know them, and understand that if I have knowingly provided false facts, charges may be brought against me for perjury.
