Dismissed with prejudice is a final judgment. It means the plaintiff is barred from bringing an action on the same claim.
See a local landlord tenant attorney to determine who the proper parties are and how you can proceed against them.

You need to speak with a civil attorney/landlord-tenant attorney. Dismissal with prejudice may bar you from re-filing. Either way, you want to get it right this time because you've probably already wasted the filing fee once. At some point, it may not be worth it depending on the size of the deposit. Good luck.Ask a similar question
