Res Judicata

Res Judicata definition

What does Res Judicata mean?

A res judicata is a decision by a judge or tribunal with jurisdiction over the cause of action and the parties, which disposes, with finality, of a matter decided so that it cannot be re-litigated by those bound by the judgment, except on appeal.

Res Judicata explained

It is closely associated with cause of action estoppel which prevents a cause of action being raised or challenged in subsequent proceedings (between the same parties, or their privies), involving the same subject matter, which is identical to the cause of action in the earlier proceedings. It is also associated with issue estoppel and Henderson abuse
