Faced with the problem of how to capture the essence of the corporate drama when much visual and financial information in the reports was not amenable to dramatistic analysis, I decided to examine the language of what is often referred to as the 'boiler plate
', the chief executive Officer's (CEO) overview of the passing year which introduces and justifies the rest of the annual report.
My approach is to surround the boiler plate
language with plain English.
The gauge measures this pressure in pounds per square inch, and all boilers and boiler plate
are measured and rated in tensile strength of pounds-per-square-inch.
Justice Friedman realized that the issue before him was important beyond this case, since the mortgage paragraph relied upon by the bank is part of the basic "boiler plate
" provisions of nearly every mortgage on real property in New York State, including cooperatives.
In dismissing the case the lower court found that Paragraph 27 (the standard boiler plate
Bills and Notices provision) superseded the Statute which provided the landlord with an alternative between an oral or written rent demand, and thus the Landlord was required to make a written demand.
