The procedure for obtaining a declaratory judgment pursuant to Code ยงยง 15-53-10 through 15-53-140, shall be in accordance with these rules, and the right to trial by jury may be demanded under the circumstances and in the manner provided in Rules 38 and 39. The existence of another adequate remedy does not preclude a judgment for declaratory relief in cases where it is appropriate. The court may order a speedy hearing of an action for a declaratory judgment and may advance it on the calendar.


This is the same as the language of Federal Rule 57 except that the appropriate State Code references are substituted for the Federal statute.
