A plaintiff filed a TRO against a defendant in a property dispute. The TRO was granted. The case went to trial but then there was a settlement so the court dismissed the complaint WITH prejudice. Settlement was then stalled by the plaintiff and a hearing is scheduled to argue enforcement of the settlement.
Question is: is the TRO still enforceable, or has it been dismissed with the complaint?

Are you sure that you mean a TRO and not a PJR? A TRO is a temporary restraining order and it would explain on the face of it the time limits. A PJR is a preliminary judgment order that secures property to prevent its loss and frustrate a Plaintiff's recovery. You should probably discuss this with your attorney or an experienced collection attorney.
