3 ways to deny material allegation

Under Section 10, Rule 8 of the Rules of Court, a defendant may specifically deny a material allegation of the plaintiff in any of three ways.

  1. The first is by specifying each material allegation of fact the truth of which he does not admit and, whenever practicable, by setting forth the substance of the matters upon which he relies to support his denial.
  2. The second is where he desires to deny only a part of an averment, he shall specify so much of it as is true and material and shall deny only the remainder.
  3. The third is where he is without knowledge or information sufficient to form a belief as to the truth of a material averment made in the complaint, he shall so state, and this shall have the effect of a denial.
