This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

Nonjoinder and Misjoinder of Plaintiffs may be amended at the Trial, as in Cases of Amendments of Variances under 3 & 4 W.4 c.42.

XXXVIn case it shall appear at the Trial of any Action that there has been a Misjoinder of Plaintiffs, or that some Person or Persons, not joined as Plaintiff or Plaintiffs, ought to have been so joined, joined, and the Defendant shall not, at or before the Time of pleading, have given Notice in Writing that he object to such Nonjoinder, specifying therein the Name or Names of such Person or Persons, such Misjoinder or Nonjoinder may be amended, as a Variance, at the Trial by any Court of Record holding Plea in Civil Actions, and by any Judge sitting at Nisi Prius, or other presiding Officer, in like Manner as to the Mode of Amendment, and Proceedings consequent thereon, or as near thereto as the Circumstances of the Case will admit, as in the Case of Amendments of Variances under an Act of Parliament passed in the Session of Parliament, held in the Third and Fourth Years of the Reign of His late Majesty King William the Fourth, intituled An Act for the farther Amendment of the Law, and the better Advancement of Justice, if it shall appear to such Court, or Judge, or other presiding Officer, that such Misjoinder or Nonjoinder was not for the Purpose of obtaining an undue Advantage, and that Injustice will not be done by such Amendment, and that the Person or Persons, to be added as aforesaid, consent, either in Person or by Writing, under his, her, or their Hands, to be so joined, or that the Person or Persons, to be struck out as aforesaid, were originally introduced without his, her, or their Consent, or that such Person or Persons consent, in manner aforesaid, to be so struck out; and such Amendment shall be made upon such Terms as the Court, or Judge, or other presiding Officer, by whom such Amendment is made, shall think proper ; and when any such Amendment shall have been made, the Liability of any Person or Persons, who shall have been added as Co-plaintiff or Co-plaintiffs, shall, subject to any Terms imposed as aforesaid, be the same as if such Person or Persons had been originally joined in such Action.
