11th Circuit Decides to Apply Florida Supreme Court Ruling!



Congratulations Florida Supreme Court -- the 11th Circuit has determined that one of your opinions merits application in federal court -- just like a real opinion!
We must give full faith and credit to the decision of the Supreme Court of Florida about how to resolve this latest chapter of the intractable problem of tobacco litigation.
Still, they're not quite sure about your lingo:
Whether the Supreme Court of Florida calls the relevant doctrine issue preclusion, claim preclusion, or something else, is no concern of ours.
I agree -- let's call it "claim delusion" or "issue contusion" and see what happens!
