Prejudice

1. In [wex:civil procedure], when a court dismisses a case “with prejudice,” it means that the court intends for that dismissal to be final in all courts, and that [wex:res judicata] should bar that claim from being reasserted in another court. A dismissal “without prejudice” means the plaintiff is free to refile the claim in a different court. 
 

2. In [wex:evidence] law, a judge might exclude a piece of evidence as “prejudicial” if it would unfairly bias the jury against a party. See Federal Rule of Evidence 403.
