If P's suit gets dismissed and also gets sanctioned in Federal court, but P also filed a state court claim prior, can the defendant's use a summary judgement to get rid of the state court case, based on the federal court rule 11 sanction? I'd say no, but I am really not sure. First of all, I was under the impression that summary judgement had to take into account the current case facts, and a dismissal of a clone case in another level of court wouldn't be enough to back a summary judgement. Also, I thought Rule 11 sanctions that prevent re-litigation are for the worst of the worst, and I do not think normally Rule 11's prevent relitigation or clone litigation
