Rule 18. Joinder of claims andremedies.

(a)        Joinder of claims.– A party asserting a claim for relief as an original claim, counterclaim,cross claim, or third‑party claim, may join, either as independent or asalternate claims, as many claims, legal or equitable, as he has against anopposing party.

(b)        Joinder ofremedies; fraudulent conveyances. – Whenever a claim is one heretoforecognizable only after another claim has been prosecuted to a conclusion, thetwo claims may be joined in a single action; but the court shall grant reliefin that action only in accordance with the relative substantive rights of theparties. In particular, a plaintiff may state a claim for money and a claim tohave set aside a conveyance fraudulent as to him, without first having obtaineda judgment establishing the claim for money. (1967, c. 954, s. 1; 1969, c.895, s. 7.)
