A Small Claims Quandry

Okay - Small claims question here - maybe the MeFi legal eagles can help me out... Business A is sued by Business B is small claims court in the state of Idaho. Plaintiff, (Business B) doesn't bother to show up to the trial. Plaintiff's case is marked "dismissed with prejudice" on judgement. Business B has subsequently refiled the same case with the same court. Not appealed, but simply filed again. The court clerks are unable to clarify whether this is an oversight on their part (allowing business B to file the case again) or if it's even legal to do so. They can however, verify that this is not filed as an appeal of the original case. Clerk intends to confer with original Judge next week. Thoughts?
