I am trying to get Google to show my title and meta description but it shows the description from dmoz.com. I have the meta data "noodp" in my <head> but it is under some JavaScript. Also the page redirects due to session id passing and cookie sessions for tracking purpose.

Is there something I can do to ensure that the description and title tags from the site shows instead of the one from dmoz.

maybe you should check the cached page

I've never heard of using a "noodp" meta tag, which I assume means 'no open directory project'.

The page redirection is most likely your problem. If googlebot goes to www.site.com and gets instantly redirected to www.site.com/blah/, they have no where to pull meta information related to the specific page "www.site.com/" from other than the ODP.
