What is the name of your state? Florida
I recently had a complaint I filed dismissed without prejudice. The judge informed me I didn't follow proper procedure in the statment of my complaint, but said he was not deciding that I did not have grounds for the suit. He said I could re-file up to four more times.
I was informed by the defendants attorney after the hearing that he would mail me the paperwork indicating the judges ruling. He never did.
I have been suffering emotionally and psychologically as a result of the defendants actions and have this medically documented, thus delaying my refiling.
I recieved a letter today that the defendants attorney filed asking for a dismissal "with prejudice" without a hearing due to my not refiling an amended complaint within 20 days.
I was unaware and never notified of this timeframe to respond, and due to dealing with my health conditions have not reponded yet, but fully intended to re file.
I want to respond asking to continue or stay the original order of dismissal without prejudice.
How should I formulate the response and is this feasable? What should I be aware of?
