United States Second Circuit

Brown Media Corporation v. K&L Gates, LLP, 15-4185

In an action asserting claims for breach of fiduciary duty, tortious interference, and common law fraud against a law firm and two of its former partners, brought by unsuccessful bidders in a bankruptcy proceeding, alleging that defendants used their prior representation of the plaintiffs to undermine the plaintiffs' attempt to acquire assets in a bankruptcy sale, the district court's dismissal of the complaint on res judicata grounds is reversed where plaintiffs could not have brought their claims during the bankruptcy proceedings, and this present action will not disturb the orders of the bankruptcy court.
