to alter. One amends a statute by changing (but not abolishing) an established law. One amends a pleading by adding to or substracting from an already existing pleading. EXAMPLE: Lily sues a manufacturing company for injuries resulting from a defect in one of their products. After she files her papers with the court, she discovers new facts which indicate that the company was negligent in developing the product. Lily seeks to amend her pleading to include these new facts, and, as is generally the case, she is permitted to amend.
