 Idaho Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 22. Interpleader.


(a)   Grounds.


(1)   By a Plaintiff. Persons with claims that may expose a plaintiff to double or multiple liability may be joined as defendants and required to interplead. Joinder for interpleader is proper even though:


(A)   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


(B)   the plaintiff denies liability in whole or in part to any or all of the claimants.


(2)   By a Defendant. A defendant exposed to similar liability may seek interpleader through a cross-claim or counterclaim.


(b)   Relation to Other Rules. This rule supplements and does not limit the joinder of parties allowed by Rule 20.
