Reference to other conditions of use and legal notices

On Proell Attorneys at Law’s website, special agreements and terms may be stipulated in individual sub-sections, in special informational areas and in relation to individual services. In the event of any conflicting interpretation, these special agreements and terms take precedence over the above terms of use and legal notices.

Liegt eine Parteienhäufung vor, so sind gemäß § 55 Abs 1 Z 2 JN mehrere in einer Klage geltend gemachte Ansprüche zusammenzurechnen, wenn sie von mehreren Parteien oder gegen mehrere Parteien erhoben werden, die Streitgenossen nach § 11 Z 1 ZPO sind. Das Gesetz verlangt somit im Bereich der Parteienhäufung das Vorliegen einer materiellen Streitgenossenschaftächster Suchbegriff entweder auf Klags- oder auf Beklagtenseite. Es muss somit entweder eine Rechtsgemeinschaft hinsichtlich des Streitgegenstands bestehen oder eine Parteienmehrheit, die aus demselben tatsächlichen Grund (allenfalls sogar solidarisch) berechtigt oder verpflichtet ist. Liegt hingegen – wie hier – lediglich eine formelle orheriger SuchbegriffStreitgenossenschaft nach § 11 Z 2 ZPO vor, kommt es selbst dann nicht zu einer Zusammenrechnung der Streitwerte, wenn die geltend gemachten Forderungen in einem tatsächlichen oder rechtlichen Zusammenhang stehen (vgl RIS-Justiz RS0053096 [T10]). Ist in einem Verfahren Anspruchs- und gleichzeitig Parteienhäufung gegeben, sind bei Vorliegen der Voraussetzungen des § 55 Abs 1 Z 1 JN zwar die gehäuften Ansprüche der betreffenden Partei zusammenzurechnen, nicht jedoch diese Ansprüche mit jenen der übrigen formellen Streitgenossen (vgl Gitschthaler in Fasching/Konecny3 § 55 JN, Rz 23 und 23/1).
