Idahor Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 12(e). Motion for More Definite Statement.

If a pleading to which a responsive pleading is permitted violates the provisions of Rules 10(a) or 10(b) or is so vague or ambiguous that a party cannot reasonably be required to frame a responsive pleading, the party may move for a compliance with Rules 10(a)(4) [10(a)] or 10(b) or for a more definite statement before interposing the responsive pleading. The motion shall point out the defects complained of and the details desired. If the motion is granted and the order of the court is not obeyed within ten (10) days after notice of the order or within such other time as the court may fix, the court may strike the pleading to which the motion was directed or make such order as it deems just. In actions on an account it shall be sufficient to summarize all transactions on the account, and the obligor of the account shall have no right to demand a written copy of the accounting except as may be ordered by Rule 34 of these rules.
