When the proceeding is taken to the Circuit Court, all necessary parties shall be brought before the court by the plaintiff. The final decision given shall, subject to appeal to the Court of Appeals, be a bar to any other proceeding calling the probate or rejection of the will in question. This section does not preclude a court of justice from its jurisdiction to impeach such final decision for any reason that would give it jurisdiction over any other judgment at law.
