Christi Marie Beck-Samms v. Gregory Samms and Chadrick R. Porter

Case Number:
Case Date:
Case Issue:

Plaintiff appeals from the circuit court's order dismissing this action under Rule 12(b)(6) for failure to state a claim. The circuit court found that plaintiff's tort claim for fraud should be dismissed as the time period for appeal of family court's final order had passed; because the 1-year time limit to file a fraud action under Rule 60(b) had expired; and because plaintiff's claims were barred by the doctrines of res judicata and collateral estoppel. Plaintiff seeks a reversal of the circuit court's order and a remand to the circuit court for further proceedings.
