In Arizona, Are Plaintiffs and Intervenor-Plaintiffs Considered Separate Parties For The Purposes Of Rule 68 Offers Of Judgment?

Asked 9 months ago - Gilbert, AZ

If a Plaintiff makes apportioned Rule 68 Offer of Judgement to a group of Defendants in a personal injury lawsuit, would the potential penalties apply any differently in the instance that the Intervenor-Plaintiff in the same suit does not make any Rule 68 Offer of Judgement to the Defendants, or makes one for a different amount? In other words, if Plaintiff makes one and Intervenor-Plaintiff makes one, do Defendants have to consider each offer of judgement separately (as two separate Plaintiffs) for the purpose of Rule 68 sanctions, or would the Court take the average between the two offers?
