Welcome and thank you for your question. It means that the court was considering dismissing the case for lack of activity. Was there a hearing date scheduled with the FWOP? If no from either side showed up the case was probably not dismissed.
What date was the foreclosure filed in court?
Foreclosure was filed Jan 2009
FWOP notice Aug 2010
FWOP was dismissed ( I attended and judge denied bank attorney's letter of good cause)
Haven't seen/heard anything since.
I am missing a plugin to actually open the page and read it but I don't remember reading any statement like that.
Unfortunately, I cannot see the image.
The case was filed within the statute of limitations period and could be refiled if it was dismissed without prejudice.
If the case was dismissed without prejudice the case can be refiled by the lender. If it was with prejudice the case cannot be refiled.
Here is what it says:
In the Circuit Court of the 11th Judicial Circuit in and for Miami Dade, County, Florida

Last question: If you are awarded the Quiet title this leaves you a clear title?
