In the movie''The Lincoln Lawyer'' the prosecutor tells the judge:Your Honor, I spoke with the district attorney. The state wishes to dismiss all charges. You have the motion in front of you. Judge:This is a motion to dismiss with prejudice. Case closed. Prosecutor:Yes, Your Honor.
What does the judge mean by saying''This is a motion to dismiss with prejudice''?

    I agree with Benny.
    Judge:This is a motion to dismiss with prejudice.
    This is a formal request for a court to dismiss a case for good, terminating the plaintiff’s right of action on the same claim. The case becomes res judicata. "With prejudice" means "with a waiver or loss of rights."
