Perhaps no legal doctrine has been the source of so much confusion and misunderstanding as collateral estoppel. This is unfortunate since issues involving collateral estoppel arise in a large number of cases, and when properly raised are often determinative of the entire case. For the practicing attorney, it is just as important to know how to defend against an adversary's use of collateral estoppel as it is to know when and how to raise this doctrine offensively.
