A federal court on Monday dismissed the Federal Trade Commission's antitrust complaint against Facebook, as well as a parallel case brought by 48 state attorneys general, dealing a major setback to the agency's complaint, which could have resulted in Facebook divesting Instagram and WhatsApp.
However, the court completely dismissed the parallel case from the state attorneys general, saying that the long delay between the acquisitions and the 2020 case filing was unprecedented on a state level, and that the states' argument about \"Facebook preventing interoperability with competing apps fails to state a claim under current antitrust law, as there is nothing unlawful about having such a policy.\"
A federal appeals court has dismissed a lawsuit brought by nearly two dozen young people aimed at forcing the federal government to take bolder action on climate change, saying the courts were not the appropriate place to address the issue.

Complaints may be dismissed as unfounded or frivolous when the evidence presented is insufficient to support the alleged violations. For example, a complaint may present the requisite evidence to suggest a potential allegation, but, after assessment of the facts, it is dismissed because no violation is found to have occurred.

To be dismissed, as opposed to quitting voluntarily (or being laid off), is often perceived as being the employee's fault. Finding new employment may often be difficult after being fired, particularly if there is a history of being terminated from a previous job, if the reason for firing is for some serious infraction, or the employee did not keep the job very long. Job seekers will often not mention jobs that they were fired from on their resumes; accordingly, unexplained gaps in employment are often regarded as a red flag.
Most US states have adopted the at-will employment contract that allows the employer to dismiss employees without having to provide a justified reason for firing, although the variety of court cases that have come out of \"at-will\" dismissals have made such at-will contracts ambiguous. Often, an at-will termination is handled as a \"layoff\". Sometimes, an employee will be dismissed if an employer can find better employees than the incumbent, even if the fired employee has not technically broken any rules. This is common with probationary employees who were recently hired, but who cannot adjust to the environment of the workplace, or those who have been around for a long time, but can be replaced with a less experienced employee who can be paid a lower salary. In contrast, a dismissal in France is subjected to a just cause and a formal procedure.
A forced resignation is when an employee is required to depart from their position due to some issue caused by their continued employment. A forced resignation may be due to the employer's wishes to dismiss the employee, but the employer may be offering a softened firing, or in a high-profile position, the employee may want to leave before the press learns more negative information about one's controversial nature. To avoid this, and to allow the dismissed employee to \"save face\" in a more \"graceful\" exit, the employer will often ask the employee to resign \"voluntarily\" from their position. If the employee chooses not to resign, the processes necessary to fire them may be pursued, and the employee will usually be fired. The resignation thus makes it unclear whether the resignation was forced or voluntary, and this opaqueness may benefit both parties.
Robert Lee Wood, who faced one count of making a false affirmation on a voter application, and one count of voting as an unqualified elector, had his charges dismissed on the grounds that the prosecutor lacked appropriate jurisdiction.

Even by the time the Supreme Court agreed to take up the public-charge issue, it seemed likely that the dispute might not survive until the justices could hear oral argument in the fall. In early February, the Biden administration ordered a review of the public-charge rule. And in a joint filing on Tuesday, Prelogar told the justices that everyone involved in the case had agreed that it should be dismissed. Prelogar submitted similar filings in two other cases in which the federal government had asked the justices to review the rulings by the 7th and 9th Circuits.
California does not have a true expungement process. A \"true\" expungement seals arrest and conviction records. Dismissal under PC 1203.4 - external link does not seal the arrest or conviction. The case will still show up on a background check, but it will show up as dismissed. The most common reason a person files for this type of relief is to be able to state on most job applications that they have not been convicted of a felony/crime.
