Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Res judicata applies only to claims that have already been decided upon. If there is new evidence that has been discovered on a matter that has already been decided upon in a previous court ruling, then the proper means to address that is by filing a motion to vacate the decision based on the newly discovered evidence.
