Enjoin or Joinder of action

  • Where a party suing another enjoins a third party to the action this is a joinder of action.
  • This could happen where a tenant sues a landlord for non paymnet of a deposit returned erroneously by the agent.  The agent is enjoined and must admit guilt and compensate or defend the action.
  • This is despite the agent no longer holding the deposit.
  • The agent was responsible for the return of the deposit to the correct party.
  • See stakeholder
