Don't ever let me pay for BarBri again (sorry Alex:-)

Sample in test prep...

True or False Question:
Plaintiff (P) has sued Wholesaler (W). W files an impleader against a new party, Manufacturer (M), alleging that M as the tire manufacturer, should indemnify W if W is in any way held liable for P's injuries. W's motion to strike the impleader should be granted.

Answer: False, a claim of indemnity can be brought even against an outsider.

Overlooked by BarBri: Why in the hell would W move to strike an impleader that they filed for in the first place???
