Uncontested- dismissed without costs, what it mean?


Today I received a Judgement Regarding a Original Suit Case. The respondent of this case just appeared only once for this case. So the Judgement given as "Case Disposed - Uncontested--DISMISSED WITHOUT COSTS".

what is the Legal Meaning or actual meaning for the words "Uncontested--DISMISSED WITHOUT COSTS"?

Can any one help? Below is the Screen Shot

Uncontested means the opposite party is absent through out the case to contest the palintiffs case.. Plaintriff case was heard exparty. And Plaintiff failed to prove his case. Dismissed without costs means Plintiff failed to prove his case to the satisfaction of  the court and hence his case  is dismissed without costs. Costs menas  he will not  get  court expenses such as couer t fee, batta AND LITIGATION COSTS ETC. iN ONE WORD plaintiff MISERABLY LOST HIS CASE  WITHOUT  LITIGATION EXPENSES BEING PAID BY THE OPPOSITE PARTY OR TO THE JUBILATION O F THE OPPOSITE PARTY-DEFENDANT THOUGH  HE DIDN'T CONTEST the plaintiff's case he won..iF YOU APPRECIATE THIS  REPLY YOU  PLEASE CLICK THE  THANK YOU BUTTON ON  THIS FORUM.
