Affidavit of no Collusion Law and Legal Definition

Affidavit of no collusion is an affidavit required of the plaintiff in a bill of interpleader. Such an affidavit is filed stating that the plaintiff’s bill is not filed in collusion with either of the defendants named therein, but merely of his own accord, to obtain the relief sought. However, in current practice, the affidavit is not required if the plaintiff's bill of complaint, duly verified, effectively alleges the absence of collusion.
