In an appeal from the district court's order enjoining plaintiffs in a products liability class action from relitigating in state court the certification of a West Virginia class, the order is affirmed where: 1) the relitigation exception to the Anti-Injunction Act permitted an injunction barring relitigation in state court of a federal court's denial of class certification; and 2) plaintiffs were collaterally estopped by the federal denial of class certification from relitigating the issue.
