Rule 92. General Denial


A general denial of matters pleaded by the adverse party which are not required to be denied under oath, shall be sufficient to put the same in issue. Where the defendant has pleaded a general denial, and the plaintiff shall afterward amend his pleading, such original denial shall be presumed to extend to all matters subsequently set up by the plaintiff.
