If a Notice of Dismissal includes a "Finality Notice" it has come to the attention of the Court that the case needs to be disposed of in the very near future.
If a Motion to Retain or a letter removing a case from the dismissal docket is granted, the Order will usually give a date upon which it will be dismissed -- if no action is taken to finalize the case. No further notice is given of the intent to dismiss a case after it has been retained.
Cases which have been reinstated are generally subject to the same rules as a Retained Case. Some action must be taken to finalize the case within the time period set forth on the Order Reinstating.
