First Union National Bank v. Penn Salem Marina, Inc.

5-10-07 (A-11-06)

When there is an action on a note followed by an action to
foreclose on the security, the trial court in the second action
should be bound by the judgment entered in the first action to
the extent the same categories of damages are claimed in the
second as in the first. In this instance, issue preclusion
requires that both judgments contain the same amounts for those
categories of damages that cover the same period of time.
