Depends on whether the dismissal was ":with prejudice" or "Without prejudice" - when you go back be sure to argue that it was "with prejudice" and complain that you were there in court ready and willing to have a tiralof the matter and it is unfair to have to come back multiple times.
If the original dismissal was "without" prejudice then bringing you back in is controlled only by the statute of limitations.
BE sure to bring not just signed statements but actual witnesses if you think the judge is gong to have the trial on the day your go back.
All the best,
If thisis a motion for a retraining order the court will allow notarized statements intitially, but if the court issues the restrainingorder on a temporary basis -- until a "trial" can be held -- then you will need live witnesses at the trial!
Robert, I have found that it is not a good idea to assume what will happen in a court room - it is a good idea to come prepared!!!!
I wish I could guarantee an outcome but I cannot,
ALl the best,
