- Each separate statement in a complaint within a cause of action which, standing alone, would give rise to a lawsuit, or each separate charge in a criminal action. This term is synonymous with legal theory. In much of our pleading, the term count has been replaced by the term cause of action, which now may encompass both causes of action and counts. Count is also many times replaced by the term claim for relief, which encompasses both causes of action and counts.
