Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 111 F.3d 135 (8th Cir. 1997) Submitted March 10, 1997. Decided April 4, 1997

Before MAGILL, JOHN R. GIBSON, and MURPHY, Circuit Judges.


Louise N. Gordon appeals the district court's1  grant of summary judgment for the defendants in this diversity action for attorney malpractice and related claims. The district court held that Gordon is collaterally estopped from relitigating issues previously decided in a Minnesota state court proceeding awarding an attorneys' lien against her. Having reviewed the record and the parties' briefs, we conclude that the district court did not err in its grant of summary judgment. Accordingly, we affirm. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.


The Honorable Donald A. Alsop, United States District Judge for the District of Minnesota
