Whether appellant’s claims were barred under the doctrine of res judicata?
The pro se parties had been in extensive civil, administrative, and criminal litigation arising from events related to a contract for residential construction. The trial court granted respondent’s motion to dismiss appellants’ 11 claims on the ground that they were barred under the doctrine of res judicata. The Minnesota Court of Appeals upheld the dismissals under the doctrine of res judicata on the grounds that appellants either did litigate or had the opportunity to litigate all of their claims against respondents in a prior 2013 breach of contract case and a 2018 breach of contract and fraud case.
