RULE CRLJ 14A REMOVAL TO SUPERIOR COURT (a) Jurisdiction Over Third Party. A case may be removed to superior court in order to obtain jurisdiction over a third party defendant, as provided in RCW 4.14.010. This procedure is governed by RCW 4.14. (b) Claims in Excess of Jurisdiction--Generally. When any party in good faith asserts a claim in an amount in excess of the jurisdiction of the district court or seeks a remedy beyond the jurisdiction of the district court, the district court shall order the entire case removed to superior court. (c) Claims in Excess of Jurisdiction--Orders and Process. If a case is removed to the superior court under section (b) of this rule, the superior court may issue all necessary orders and process as provided in RCW 4.14.030. (d) Claims in Excess of Jurisdiction--Improper Removal. If it appears that a case has been improperly removed to the superior court under section (b) of this rule, the superior court shall remand the case as provided in RCW 4.14.030. (e) Claims in Excess of Jurisdiction--Attached Property; Custody. If property of a defendant is attached or garnished prior to the removal of a case, the attachment or garnishment shall be transferred with the removed case to the superior court and shall be held to answer the final judgment or decree in the same manner as it would have been held to answer had the cause been brought in the superior court originally.
