What about the fact that it was dismissed without prejudice twice? doesn't that matter? I thought if they dismiss it twice without prejudice that equals - with prejudice?
You are totally worth the money - but a few other things -
I'm in Michigan now
and I'm being sued in Michigan - not Ohio
so it's Michigan law ....
and yes - it says -
Notice of Dismissal by Plaintiff
Plaintiff/Attorney for plaintiff files this notice of dismissal of this case without prejudice as to: all defendants. - order to dismiss - and it's signed by the judge - the first one is dated 12/10/2012
same thing again - dated 4/29/2013
signed again - by the judge
but - the case number XXXXX XXXXX same -(NNN) NNN-NNNN- not sure if that matters
It's two different signatures - but the same judge - it's stamped two different times -
Then - I get this one on 7/19/2013 - and it says - there is no other pending or resolved action within the jurisdiction of this - blah, blah -
it's the same exact court - same exact judge - same exact plaintiff and attorney - only a different attorney at the same firm signed it this time - is the only difference. Sorry - this is so much I know. I know I need to respond and I will - I will even get an attorney - I just want to know what you know about this and Michigan law as it pertains to this situation.
I'm sorry - I tried to retract that relist - I am very happy with your response and answers - this is new to me and I wasn't sure how the response times worked . I will give give a rating when I'm done and it will be excellent. I hope that won't hurt you.
I was worried that because both dismissals without prejudice - have the same case number XXXXX they might not count as two dismissals without prejudice ......... I'm worried it could be an error - like they weren't aware they had already done it ......... do you think that would matter? I really think this is my last question - and again - sorry for not being more patient.
I wish you lived in Michigan
