interpleader

A legal proceeding in which one holding money and making no claim to it, but unsure as to which of several claimants should receive the money,pays the money into court.This is the normal route taken by an escrow agent or someone else holding earnest money when the buyer and seller both demand the earnest money.The escrow company will name both the buyer and seller as defendants; ask that it be reimbursed out of the money for its costs, usually a small attorney's fee and a court filing fee; and that it be allowed to exit from the fight. The buyer and seller then battle over the funds.
