In law, the phrase without prejudice means that a claim, lawsuit, or proceeding has been brought to a temporary end but that no legal rights or privileges have been determined, waived, or lost by the result.

This means that the dismissal is no bar to bringing a new lawsuit in a court that does have jurisdiction.
