1999 Bar: Distinguish a counterclaim from a cross-claim. (2%)


A counterclaim is different from a cross-claim. A cross-clam is any claim by one party against a co-party arising out of the transaction or occurrence that is the subject matter either of the original action or of a counterclaim therein. A counterclaim is against a co-party (Sec. 6, Rule 6).
