Wisconsin Court of Appeals

Civil

Property — landlord-tenant — breach of contract

This appeal by a pro se tenant presents two issues. The circuit court dismissed the tenant’s small claims action against her landlord, Fiduciary Real Estate Development. The issues are (1) whether tenant Diana Goodavage’s breach of contract claim is precluded by a prior court decision in a related case, and (2) whether Goodavage’s breach of contract claim fails on its merits, even if it is not precluded by the prior decision. This court concludes that Goodavage fails to show in this appeal that her claim is not precluded by the prior decision, Fiduciary Real Estate Development, Inc. v. Goodavage, No. 2010AP3056, unpublished slip op. (WI App Dec. 22, 2011). This court also concludes that, even if her claim is not precluded, it fails on its merits. The order is therefore affirmed. This opinion will not be published.
