RE: Rule 12, N.D.R.Civ.P., Defenses and Objections-When and How Presented-By Pleading or Motion-Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings
Amendments are proposed for Rule 12(a) that would specify when a defendant would need to serve an answer. The amendments also would allow additional time to answer if the defendant had waived service.
