Civil Procedure – Res Judicata – Claim-Splitting – Sanctions

A real estate financing company that lost a 2006 suit with a former business associate has its later suit against the associate dismissed as barred by res judicata, and the Fairfax Circuit Court adds insult to injury by sanctioning the lawyer hired to bring the second suit for $25,626 under Va. Code § 8.01-271.1.
Gray Diversified Asset Mgmt. Inc. v. Canellis (Fairfax Cir.Ct.) (VLW 008-8-242) (5 pp.)
