Holding: Because the trademark action at issue challenged different conduct—and raised different claims—from an earlier action between the parties, Marcel cannot preclude Lucky Brand from raising new defenses, including a defense that Lucky Brand failed to press fully in the earlier suit.
Judgment: Reversed and remanded, 9-0, in an opinion by Justice Sotomayor on May 14, 2020.
