Civil Procedure — issue preclusion

Reginald Chamberlain and his wife, Madonna Chamberlain, pro se, appeal an order of the circuit court dismissing on summary judgment their negligence action against Fitchburg Plumbing, Inc. The circuit court determined that the Chamberlains were precluded by the doctrine of issue preclusion from relitigating issues pertaining to whether Reginald sustained injury from exposure to sewer gas emitted from a sewer pipe the Chamberlains alleged was negligently installed by Fitchburg Plumbing because those issues had been previously litigated and determined in a worker’s compensation action brought by Reginald against his employer and its worker’s compensation insurer. We affirm. Not recommended for publication in the official reports.
