Legal Answers
1 Questions Answered
Q. does a dismissal without prejudice require an order to be signed by a judge?
A: No, but be careful! A Plaintiff in Georgia is allowed to voluntarily dismiss their case without prejudice before the first witness is called, but there are important limitations on refiling the case. There may be a statute of repose, barring any refiling after a certain time following the event. Also, voluntarily dismissing a case more than once will result in adjudication “on the merits” of the entire action, barring any refiling.
