Open the Trash, highlight the files and rightclick choose "put back".
Then in Finder go to the folder where those files are,
Click TM and you will see the same finder Window but now in TM,
rightclick them and choose "delete all backups of...."

Thanks for your answer Lex. There is not a "put back" option when I right click. I think because the files came from Time Machine. This locks the files down, nice and tight. They are STUCK in my trash. I can't copy them anywhere. Let me know if you think of another idea.

Thanks Eric, I've looked at this info. It does not seem to address my issue. Deleteing Time machine files that are in the trash. Once in, they cannot come out. I've tried Cocktail and trash it. Both are not strong enough. Please let me know if you have any other ideas.

I figured it out! I downloaded Cocktail. I than renamed the folders in the trash. You are asked to authenticate every time so this took some time. I don't know if this had anything to do with anything but it worked. Than I opened cocktail and chose "files" from the top menu (NOT THE PULLDOWN) than I chose "Locked" and I was able to drag my folders one by one to Cocktail. Not everything in the folder gets deleted. You may get an error message. I was able to choose empty securely inside of the trash window...and EVERYTHING was gone out of the trash! How about that for a MONDAY?! Thanks Eric and Lex for your help!
