In addition to affirmative defenses and varying forms of denials, the defendant may, if he has a claim against the plaintiff, plead that claim as a counterclaim. If the defendant is required to plead a claim, it is called a compulsory counterclaim. If the defendant has the option of pleading the claim or not, it is called a permissive counterclaim.
