Idaho Civil Rule 22: InterpleaderIdaho Civil Rule 22 governs interpleaders which are defined as “a suit pleaded between two parties to determine a matter of claim or right to property held by a third party”.

With that being said, Rule 22 states that if someone or multiple people have claims that may expose a plaintiff to multiple liabilities may be joined as defendants and required to interplead. This joinder would be proper even if these claims lack a common origin, are adverse to one another, or the plaintiff denies liability in whole or part to any or all of the claimants.

The rule also states that the defendant can seek interpleader through a cross-claim or counterclaim if they are exposed to similar liability as stated above.

Lastly, Rule 20 states that this rule does not limit the joinder of parties allowed by Rule 20.

Idaho Civil Rule 22: Interpleader

    • By a plaintiff. Persons with claims that may expose a plaintiff to double or multiple liabilities may be joined as defendants and required to interplead. Joinder for interpleader is proper even though:
      1. the claims of the several claimants, or the titles on which their claims depend, lack a common origin or are adverse and independent rather than identical; or
      2. the plaintiff denies liability in whole or in part to any or all of the claimants.
    • By a defendant. A defendant exposed to similar liability may seek interpleader through a cross-claim or counterclaim.
  1. Relation to other rules. This rule supplements and does not limit the joinder of parties allowed by Rule 20.
