Res Judicata

Pondview Corp. v Blatt, 2012 NY Slip Op 03618 (2nd Dept., 2012)

Here, the claims asserted by the plaintiffs arose out of the same transaction or series of transactions as those raised in a prior action commenced by the plaintiffs in 2003 (hereinafter the 2003 action). Moreover, all of the claims asserted here either were raised or could have been raised in the 2003 action. Accordingly, notwithstanding the fact that some relief sought in this action is different from that sought in the 2003 action, the Supreme Court properly granted those branches of the defendants' separate motions which were to dismiss the complaint insofar as asserted against each of them pursuant to CPLR 3211(a)(5), based on the doctrine of res judicata.
