third party practice

Postby SKlei » Fri May 18, 2012 6:16 am

if a defendant brings in a third party defendant, do they first have to go through rule 15?

(1) Timing of the Summons and Complaint. A defending party may, as third-party plaintiff, serve a summons and complaint on a nonparty who is or may be liable to it for all or part of the claim against it. But the third-party plaintiff must, by motion, obtain the court's leave if it files the third-party complaint more than 14 days after serving its original answer.
