Case is accessible after transferring it to different Work List



User creates a parent case. A child case is automatically generated. On clicking on the child case link, a new tab appears where user transfers the child case to a different person. 'Case status' and 'Assigned to' changes in the new tab. User closes the new tab and returns to the first tab, where 'status' and 'Assigned to' of the child case on screen is not refreshed and has old values. User can again click on the child case and proceed with it despite it being in a different worklist.
