You need to have the court enter an order that any future claims are dismissed with prejudice which means she cannot bring the same claim to be heard again. If the court dismisses the claim without prejudice this allows her to keep bringing the claim. "with prejudice" is the key. You would file a motion to dismiss "with prejudice" and explain to the jduge that it is the same claim she is bringing over and over.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
