Are there Sanctions or any step to be taken when Plaintiff's attorney that did not win lawsuit in small claims court has not

Asked over 1 year ago - Miami, FL

Submitted the order after 1 month and a half and the case still shows as " undisposed " on the docket. It has already been ruled by the judge. What do I do? Does my attorney needs to contact Plaintiff's attorney? Could it have been done maliciously to avoid an appeal by defendant? How long after the ruling should the " plaintiff " submit order? It has been well over a month. This was a frivolous lawsuit.
