Levin v. Ligon, A109477

Summary judgment in favor of plaintiff's former wife and grant of a motion for judgment on the pleadings in an action for civil partition of financial assets held in her name are affirmed over his claim that the trial court erred in finding that plaintiff's prior legal malpractice action in England, wherein he had asserted he had lost his right to any interest in certain assets, estopped him from claiming a community property interest in those assets.
