§3-811. Counterclaims

In allowing a claim the personal representative may deduct any counterclaim which
the estate has against the claimant. In determining a claim against an estate a court
shall reduce the amount allowed by the amount of any counterclaims and, if the counterclaims
exceed the claim, render a judgment against the claimant in the amount of the excess.
A counterclaim, liquidated or unliquidated, may arise from a transaction other than
that upon which the claim is based. A counterclaim may give rise to relief exceeding
in amount or different in kind from that sought in the claim. [1979, c. 540, §1 (NEW).]
