Ferraro v. Camarlinghi, H030890

In a controversy concerning a decedent's property distributions, an order striking plaintiff's complaint on several grounds of preclusion is reversed and remanded where: 1) trial court erred as none of the orders cited as bars to the action was shown to possess the characteristics necessary to give them preclusive effect against the plaintiff; 2) plaintiff's claims were asserted within the applicable limitations period; and 3) the compulsory cross-complaint rule does not apply to those claims.
