Well, at least you included a URL (PDF though it is). But this is not
about the scope of a dismissal "with prejudice".  What's the scope of a
dismissal with prejudice? Does it apply to future violations as well?

To clarify, suppose somebody hits you, and you sue him, and he succeeds
in persuading you to dismiss with prejudice. Does this now give that
person a lifetime license to hit you any time he wishes? Citations would
be great!
