Partner Robert Ritter and Associate Lori Johnson successfully represented a commercial landlord before the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. The landlord's complaint against the tenant for unpaid rent had been dismissed by the federal district court based upon the entire controversy doctrine, because the parties had previously litigated a rent claim. The Third Circuit reversed and ruled that the entire controversy doctrine did not apply because the rent in the second action had not yet accrued, and because the judge in the first action had specifically reserved the landlord's future rent claim. After the reversal by the Third Circuit, the tenant promptly settled by paying accrued rent, taxes, common area maintenance, interest, late charges and attorneys fees.
