In Preiser v. Rodriguez, 411 U. S. 475, 411 U. S. 497, the Court noted with implicit approval the view of other federal courts that res judicata principles fully apply to civil rights suits brought under that statute. See also Huffman v. Pursue, Ltd., 420 U. S. 592, 420 U. S. 606, n. 18; 418 U. S. 554, n. 12. The cases noted in Preiser applied res judicata to issues decided both in state civil proceedings, e.g., Coogan v.

E.g., Robbins v. District Court, 592 F.2d 1015 (CA8 1979); Jennings v. Caddo Parish School Bd., 531 F.2d 1331 (CA5 1976); Lovely v. Laliberte, 498 F.2d 1261 (CA1 1974); Brown v.
