Common Counts

It is a common single pleading which leads to the action taken for recovering of the money owed by the defendant to the plaintiff. In such a pleading all the counts of debts are merged together so that the defendant is not able to escape or find a technical loophole in one of the counts. The count may refer to money owed, goods delivered but not yet paid or money received by defendant but not yet paid to plaintiff etc.
