Repeat Dismissal of Legal Malpractice Case

Jeff Downer and Pam DeVet won a motion to dismiss the Lyons v. Attorney case in federal court. In state court, Plaintiff pro se sued several attorneys who had represented him in a dispute many years ago. The state court dismissed on legal grounds on summary judgment. Plaintiff refiled the action in federal court, twice. The court granted Pam and Jeff’s Rule 12(b)(6) motion both times because the action had already been decided on the merits.
