Dismissal of Your Florida Lawsuit and a Motion to Set Aside the Judgment

Are you involved in a Florida lawsuit and one side has dismissed the case with prejudice, a dismissal with prejudice in your Florida lawsuit. That typically makes that matter final. That’s a final order when there’s an order on dismissal with prejudice in your Florida lawsuit.

But read the Lanson case. The Lanson case is a Third District Court of Appeal case from March 6th 2019. Why is that important? Because you can try to set aside a judgment under the Florida rules of Civil Procedure 1.540 (b) as in boy, and this particular case, the Lanson case, talks about the finality of an order of a dismissal with prejudice versus trying to set aside that order and how this really doesn’t affect that.
