Proctor v. Vishay Tech. (Cal. Ct. App. - Feb. 19, 2013)

Think back for a moment to those heady days during your first year of law school, when you learned all about res judicata.  It was almost certainly a difficult subject, it's important, right?

Yes.  Yes it is.

Eight years of litigation, and the ultimate result boils down to the proper scope of claim preclusion.

It's a tough subject, but it's often a vitally important one.
