Judgement on The Merits

Author: Webmaster / August 12, 2016 / Categories:

Judgment rendered through analysis and adjudication of the factual issues presented, rather than by the existence of a technical or procedural defect that requires one party to prevail. A judgment on the merits is binding and issues so adjudged become subject to the force of res judicata and collateral estoppels. Judgments not rendered on the merits are frequently considered dismissed without prejudice so that the factual issues may eventually be decided upon.
