Joinder Of Parties

The Federal Rules of Civil Procedure are very flexible when it comes to combining claims and parties in a single lawsuit. Rule 18(a) allows you to bring multiple, even unrelated claims against the same defendant in a lawsuit. Rule 20(a) allows you to file a lawsuit with other plaintiffs, so long as all plaintiffs (1) are interested in claims arising out of the same series of events and (2) share at least one common question of law or fact. A district court has broad power to join claims and parties, or to sever them (break them apart) into separate cases, as it sees fit.
