I have a basic question that stems purely from curiosity. It might be important to mention that I am not a lawyer nor a student of law. I have read multiple pleadings in which some of them end with a paragraph around the lines that the application
" ... is well founded in fact and in law."
What does this mean? I was under the impression that all applications that are filed at any court would be filed with the genuine belief that it is well founded. It seems to me as an obvious statement to make, and I am curious if there is a reason why people do mention it, and if it makes any difference.
