Amendment of Pleadings

In amending pleadings, the Mississippi Rules of Civil Procedure difference slightly from the Federal Rules.  The Federal Rules permit one (1) amendment as a matter of right before any responsive pleading is filed.  However, the Mississippi Rules place no such limitations according to the comments.  As such, if no responsive pleading has been filed, in theory you could file as many amendments as you want.
