Asbury Park, NJ asked in Real Estate Law for New Jersey

Q: If an individual files an ejectment order which gets dismissed can they then use an attorney to file a second?

I have a TRO for harassment against a tenant who was illegally subleasing rooms..the state is involved along with the township. She filed an ejectment which was dismissed. Her attorney claims they have filed for another ejectment. Is that possible and what is my recourse. We all are going to have to move but I do not want to lose my ability to receive the relocation assistance, required by law in NJ. Thank you

A: It depends. If the dismissal was not a decision on the merits or was not "with prejudice", the second action may not be barred.
