Whether the dismissal of a writ petition filed by a party creates a bar of res judicata against a similar petition filed in the Supreme Court under Article 32 on the same or similar facts and praying for the same or similar writ?


Whether or not a writ petition is dismissed in limine and an order is issued in its place, the substance of the order will determine whether or not the dismissal is a bar.
