What is interpleader and who is it meant to protect? Also give an example.
Interpleader protects the plaintiff from multiple liability. An example of this would be the insurance company in a plane crash where there was 100% fatalities. The insurance company is not disputing the fact that there is a payout, or how much is to be paid out. But the insurance company is requesting to put the money for payout in an account for the court to decide what amount is to be paid out to whom.
