Alexander v. Cobb 02/27/2020 In an action for an accounting, partition, and related relief relating to the ownership interests of two siblings in three tracts of land formerly owned by a testator, the circuit court did not err in ruling that claim preclusion arising from two prior litigations bars the defendant daughter from relitigating her claim of a 100% ownership interest in the properties based upon certain deeds of sale she received from her mother, or in concluding that she has a 75% interest and her plaintiff brother has a 25% interest in the properties. The circuit court’s judgment finding those ownership interests, and entering an order appointing special commissioners for sale of the properties and partition of the proceeds in accordance with those ownership interests, is affirmed.
