Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Rule 22, Interpleader
Richard D. Freer, Robert Howell Hall
This chapter of Moore's Federal Practice discusses the use and function of the two types of modern interpleader in the federal system, statutory interpleader and rule interpleader. The requirements that must be met before either type of interpleader is available are covered, and the differences between statutory and rule interpleader with respect to jurisdiction, venue, and availability of injunctions are treated in depth. Interpleader by counterclaim or crossclaim is discussed, as are the issues raised when counterclaims and crossclaims are brought in interpleader actions. The right to a jury and the right to attorney's fees in interpleader actions are also addressed.
Moore's Federal Practice (Matthew Bender) is the leading source of analysis of federal court practice and procedure and has been repeatedly relied upon by federal courts around the country. It has comprehensive and authoritative analysis on federal civil, criminal, appellate, and admiralty procedure, along with the full text of the federal rules and extensive commentary and analysis of the rules and cases interpreting the rules.
