This answer was rated:

I am involved in a bankruptcy case. They owe me money. There was an order dismissing the case with a prohibition against refiling another bankruptcy petition by or against the debtor for 180 days.

What does this mean for me?

That means you can proceed to collect the money that is owed to you as if the Bankruptcy case had not been filed.
