Motion for Nonsuit

A Motion for Nonsuit is what a creditor typically files to dismiss a lawsuit.  The motion is usually filed “without prejudice“.  This means that the Plaintiff is voluntarily giving up on their case but they reserve the right to re-file the case if they want to.  Creditors may not file the lawsuit again but they often will if it is within the statute of limitations for collecting a debt.  Thus, if a creditor dismisses a lawsuit against you, they may have the right to sue you again in the future.

It is important to understand that if someone is telling you that they will “defeat” a lawsuit or “win” a lawsuit, they are likely talking about a Motion for Nonsuit being filed by a creditor.  At Weston Legal, we will not mislead you about dismissals and nonsuits and if we are defending a case that is nonsuited or dismissed by a creditor.
