The Rooker Feldman doctrine provides that a District Court must abstain from ruling if: 1.) the plaintiff lost in state court; 2.) the plaintiff complains about injuries caused by a state court judgment; 3.) the plaintiff requests District Court review of the state court judgment; and 4.) the state court judgment entered before the District Court suit commenced.
