A legal pleading is a document drafted and filed with the court.  It is a document that can trigger a complaint against another person in civil court, or its answer to a complaint that has been filed against you.  It may also serve as formal notification to the judge in your current case that something has occurred that needs judicial intervention.  The point of the complaint is to state enough information to inform the opposing party of the nature of the claim that is drawn against them.  Moreover, it does not require any conclusions or facts to establish the essentials of a cause of action.
