Wouldn't that open up the possibility of an infinite cycle?
First, IANAL. Consult a licensed attorney in your jurisdiction for any legal advice.

Second, did B raise the issue of A's case's being fraudulent at trial? If he didn't, he generally can't re-litigate what is substantially the same case. If he did, and the judge ruled against B on the countercomplaint (the alleged fraud), B may have grounds for appeal, depending on the specifics of the case.

Third, IANAL, Consult a licensed attorney in your jurisdiction for any legal advice.
