res judicta means
When a matter between parties is decided in one suit or proceeding by a competent court and the decision is final, neither party will be allowed in a future suit or proceeding between the same parties to canvass the matter again.
The doctrine of res judicata does not apply, if the case is entertained afresh at the behest of other parties.
