A quick definition of statement of cause of action:

A statement of cause of action is a formal presentation of facts that explains why someone is taking legal action. It is usually made by the plaintiff, or the person who is bringing the case to court. It is important because it outlines the reasons for the lawsuit and helps the court understand what the case is about. A statement of cause of action can be written or spoken, and it should be clear and concise. It is not the same as a confession or an incriminating statement, which are admissions of guilt.

A more thorough explanation:

A statement of cause of action is a formal presentation of facts made by a plaintiff in a legal case. It is also known as a "statement" and is used as evidence in court.

For example, if someone sues another person for breach of contract, the statement of cause of action would outline the details of the contract, how it was breached, and the damages suffered as a result.

Another type of statement is a voluntary statement, which is made without any pressure or influence. For instance, if a witness comes forward and gives a statement to the police about a crime they witnessed, it would be considered a voluntary statement.

On the other hand, a false statement is an untrue statement made with the intent to deceive. This could include perjury, where someone lies under oath in court.

Overall, statements are an important part of the legal process and are used to establish facts and evidence in a case.
