Formal Party

A person who has no interest in the dispute between the immediate litigants but has an interest in the subject matter that can be expeditiously settled in the current proceedings and thereby prevent additional litigation.

The rules of CIVIL PROCEDURE of the various states determine who constitutes a formal party and define the rights and obligations of other categories of parties.
