On the REQUEST 4 DISMISSAL form the boxes above which read "Without prejudice" & Entire action of all parties and all causes of action".
The plaintiff is voluntarily dismissing the entire case against all defendants. "Without prejudice" means that the plaintiff can refile the same case again against one or more of the same defendants (so long as not barred by the statute of limitations). In other words, the eviction is over, for now.
