Since the lawsuit against you by a debt collection company was dismissed because the plaintiff failed to appear in court for a matter (presumably a trial) and the plaintiff is trying to set aside the dismissal, it is in your best interests to file a motion in opposition to the request to reinstate the case.

If you need help opposing the motion to set aside the dismissal, I suggest that you consult with a consumer law attorney for assistance.
