Indeed, it is apparent that the plaintiffs chose to file their diversity suit in Pennsylvania for the sole purpose of using statements from Linden and Rosedale during that proceeding, along with the courtís ruling on the viability of Lindenís arbitration clause, as a petard upon which to hoist the defendants. For those of you readers not familiar with the strategy of offensive, non-mutual collateral estoppel, it is a legal principle based on the fact that the defendant already lost on a point in a similar suit and thus cannot re-litigate it. Itís very handy for the plaintiffs in this case, as there are what appear to be some fairly damaging admissions from that first go-around.
That's an interesting phrase. I thought that big companies could weasel themselves out of anything these days. Should be interesting to follow.
