Hello sir, How to overcome res judicata: I am working with my attorney on a civil litigation case. Here is a brief description of it: 1. We are 3 partners owning a company 33 1/3 %
2. One of the partner left and they wrote a new agreement between me and the other partner.
3. I am on a H1B visa during that time. My partner cheated me saying H1B visa holders can't S-Corporation shares and placed a pre condition stating "I will become a full legal partner after getting my green card until then I can enjoy te 50% ownership, profits.."
4. Later he cheated me stating I am not a legal partner
5. My attorney also made a mistake and said I am not allowed to hold S-Corporation shares even though I can
6. Supreme court denied my petetion to accept me as legal partner
7. Now I got my green card and filed a new petetion.
8. Defendents filed a Summary Disposition stating its res judicata
9. Is there a way we can over come this? Few ideas may help my attorney.
