  • Practice and Procedural Law
DEF

A claim by one coparty against another, as by one defendant against a codefendant.

CONT

The courts have not always distinguished clearly between a cross-claim and a counterclaim, and have used one name where the other is proper under the rules, perhaps because in some states, and in the old equity practice, the term cross-complaint or cross-bill is used for what the rules regard as a counterclaim.
