Dismissal With Prejudice
Dismissal with prejudice legal definition: Dismissal with prejudice means that a civil case has been dismissed on its merits and that the judgement rendered is final. When a case has been dismissed with prejudice, the plaintiff is prohibited from bringing a future court action on the same claim.
A case may be dismissed with prejudice if:
It lacks sufficient grounds for legal action
It was brought with bad faith
The statute of limitations has expired
There are jurisdictional issues
