Crushendo defines this key bar prep and civil procedure term.

What does necessary parties mean?

necessary parties – Individuals or entities that normally are required to be joined to a case because its outcome will directly affect their interests, unless joinder would cause jurisdiction or venue problems. But if parties are vital enough, they are “indispensable parties” and the court cannot enter a final judgment without them.
