Generally speaking, if the other side wants to sue you based on facts that relate to the underlying lawsuit, they MUST due so through a counterclaim as part of the original litigation. Such counter claims are known as "compulsory counterclaims." So, to answer your question directly, "no," you generally cannot be sued for the same matter you won a judgment for.

I hope this addresses your concerns.
