In an action by the government against defendant-taxpayers to reduce to judgment federal income tax liabilities, dismissal of defendants' claims of improper notice based on their attorney's supposed failure to receive notice of tax liens and the IRS's improper failure to consider an innocent spouse defense, is affirmed as the claims are foreclosed by res judicata and are without merit.
