The doctrine of res judicata does not preclude a second medical malpractice action when the first action, challenged for failure to attach a good faith certificate or opinion letters required by C.G.S. §52-190a, properly should have been tested, not by way of motion to strike, but, rather by motion to dismiss, the granting of which would not constitute a judgment on the merits.
