No, there is really not a rule against misstates within a motion/brief. Often, attorneys will cut-and-paste from other briefs that they have written on a topic (especially if they were successful in a prior case with the topic). But if the client is concerned that there are too many mistakes, then he/she should bring it up with the attorney. Sometimes it is an inadvertent mistake that the attorney can fix with a corrected motion, but if the client feels that his case is threatened by the mistakes, he/she should bring the issue to his attorney's attention and, if it's that bad, seek a new attorney.
