A defendant must enter a plea.   That plea must be either "agree" or "disagree." A defendant who refuses to enter a plea is to be confined to a secure mental hospital until he enters a plea.

No trial can last longer than one month.

An individual can not be made to pay more than the previous 3 month's net income in covering the costs of litigational procedure.
