Jeremy Ward Obtains a Dismissal With Prejudice on Behalf of Client

Jeremy Ward represented a Defendant sued for allegedly causing a severe vehicle accident.  The case was initially filed in Tulsa County District Court, but Plaintiff later dismissed the claim for unspecified reasons.  Plaintiff timely re-filed in compliance with Oklahoma’s saving statute; however, Plaintiff failed to timely re-serve the Defendant.  Jeremy’s motion to dismiss Plaintiff’s re-filed action based on the untimely service was sustained.  The Court’s order dismissed the action without prejudice.  The second dismissal however acted as a dismissal with prejudice based on Oklahoma’s civil procedure rules and cannot be re-prosecuted by Plaintiff.  The claim is now over. Defendant did not pay anything to Plaintiff.
