The conclusions of appeal must expressly formulate the claims of the parties and the factual and legal grounds on which each of their claims is based. They also include an indication of the documents invoked. For this purpose, a summary slip is attached to them.
The parties must resume, in their last pleadings, the claims and pleas previously presented or invoked in their previous submissions. Failing that, they are deemed to have abandoned them and the court rules only on the latest conclusions filed.
The party who concludes that the judgment has been informed must expressly state the means which it invokes without being able to proceed by reference to its first instance conclusions.
The party who, without stating new grounds, requests confirmation of the judgment is deemed to own the grounds.
