Civil Practice : Claim Preclusion – Conversion

Where appellant brought claims of conversion and tortious interference with contract against an insurer in connection with alleged violations of ERISA law, the dismissal of the complaint is reversed and remanded because the district court was not confronted previously with the issues presented in the current case, so claim preclusion did not apply.

Judgment is reversed and remanded.
