Motion to Crave Oyer

In Virginia, if a lawsuit is about a contract, and the contract is not attached to the complaint, you can file a “Motion to Crave Oyer”. Whuzzat?  Forget the oyster puns.  Heard them all many years ago.  This is not a demand for oystems.  A Motion to Crave Oyer, s\Simply put, is a demand that the Plaintiff file a copy of the alleged contract with the court (and send you a copy).  Virginia is known (well-known even) for archaic terminology and pre-Civil War cases that are still good law.    God I love it!
