Definitions of VERIFICATION,
Sort: Oldest first
In one instance however, new matter need not conclude with a verification and then the pleader may pray judgment without it; for example, when the matter pleaded is merely negative. Willes, R. 5; Lawes on Pl. 145. The reason of it is evident, a negative requires no proof; and it would therefore be imper-tinent or nugatory for the pleader, who pleads a negative matter, to declare his readiness to prove it.
