Rule 12(f) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure permits a party, or the court acting sua sponte, to “strike from a pleading an insufficient defense or any redundant, immaterial, impertinent, or scandalous matter.”. This provides a mechanism to “‘clean up the pleadings, of limitations; and waiver.”. Such statement may be amended in the manner and at times as provided by Rule 15. (b) Defenses; form of denials. - A party shall state in short and plain terms his defenses to each claim asserted and shall admit or deny the averments upon which the adverse party relies. No. The statute of limitations defense has not been waived because it is not a Rule 12 defense. This affirmative defense [see Fed. R. Civ. P 8(c)(1)] could not have been raised in the Rule 12 motion, and therefore cannot be waived by omission from the motion.
