I just lost a small claims case with the judge only awarding me 500.00. I found out as a plaintiff I cant appeal it. However the person in my lawsuit was not driving the car. His friend borrowed his car and hit my child. Is it true that since the judge didnt mention her in his judgement and her name is no where on the law suit that I can sue her for negligence? She is the person that hit my car.the issue preclusion or collateral estoppel found in the common law doctrine of res judicata is not present in the civilian doctrine
