Involuntary Dismissal

Crushendo defines this key bar prep and civil procedure term.

What does involuntary dismissal mean?

involuntary dismissal – When the court dismisses a case upon motion by the defendant because the plaintiff fails to move the case along, or to obey procedural rules or a court order. Involuntary dismissal is with prejudice, unless the dismissal is for lack of jurisdiction, improper venue, or failure to join a required party.
