ADDING A PARTY UNDER RULE 19 AND 20 FRCP

Cincinnati, OH |

If I add a party (Defendant) by way of the above rules, can I mention what part of the claims they are associated in the motion, rather then filing an amended complaint under rule 15?

  1. It depends on what goal you are trying to accomplish. As the Plaintiff, you have a strong incentive to plead as many causes of action as you can and bring as many defendants into court as you can. This is a cause/claim specific analysis. Seek a qualified attorney who can guide you through this process and help you try to achieve your goal. Good luck!
