J. Springmann grants the city's motion for summary judgment as well as to take judicial notice in this suit claiming the city violated due process rights in investigating the owner's rental home for unsafe conditions. The issues have already been decided upon in state court, though the owner argues that claims regarding an alleged conspiracy to deprive him of use of the property have not been decided, having not been asserted in the prior proceedings. He could have brought these claims in the state court action and cannot use his failure to do so to avoid res judicata.
