In Dunavant v. Sirote & Permutt, the parties filed cross motions for summary judgment, requesting the court to resolve disputed legal issues as to whether defendant violated the FDCPA by publishing a notice of foreclosure sale after the state court enjoined further prosecution of the foreclosure action.  The court denied plaintiff's motion and granted defendant's motion, finding that the claim was barred by application of res judicata, because the same dispute and issues had been litigated in the state court foreclosure action.
