This is a brief reference item on a single topic in classical Roman civil procedure. A plaintiff who wished to bring a civil lawsuit under the formulary procedure was required by edict to give the defendant notice of the action he intended to bring and the evidence he intended to present. A related edict allowed either a plaintiff or defendant to compel the production of a banker’s accounts.
