Walsh v. U.S. Bank

August 6th, 2014

Minnesota Supreme Court rules that the plausibility standard adopted by the United States Supreme Court in Bell Atlantic Corp. v. Twombly and Ashcroft v. Iqbal does not apply to civil pleadings in Minnesota state court. Minnesota courts will instead continue to adhere to a standard under which a claim is sufficient to survive a motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim if it is possible on any evidence which might be produced, consistent with the pleader’s theory, to grant the relief demanded.
