Idaho Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 57. Declaratory Judgments.

(a)The procedure for obtaining a declaratory judgment pursuant to the statutes of this state, shall be in accordance with these rules, and the right to trial by jury may be demanded under the circumstances and in the manner provided in Rules 38 and 39. The existence of another adequate remedy does not preclude a judgment for declaratory relief in cases where it is appropriate. The court may order a speedy hearing of an action for a declaratory judgment and may advance it on the calendar. 


(b) In an action seeking declaratory judgment as to coverage under a policy of insurance, any person known to any party to have a claim against the insured relating to the incident that is the subject of the declaratory action shall be provided notice of the action by the party seeking declaratory judgment.
