Chapter Summary


This chapter discusses and contains forms relating to actions for damages arising from civil wrongs perpetrated or committed pursuant to civil conspiracies. It includes forms of complaints and allegations for use in actions against coconspirators, plus forms of affirmative defense for use by individual coconspirators. In addition, the chapter provides a form of petition and supporting declaration for an order allowing a conspiracy action to be filed against an attorney and client, and a form of demurrer based on a plaintiff's failure to obtain that order.

The chapter also reviews each element of the cause of action, and provides in-depth discussion of pleading, proof, attorney-client conspiracy, statute of limitations, and the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO).
