Case Management Conference
A new court date is set at the conclusion of the Pretrial Conference. When it appears that the case is going in the direction of trial rather than negotiated settlement involving a guilty plea, or if additional time for plea negotiations is needed, a Case Management Conference will be scheduled.
The Case Management Conference is a formal court appearance for the purpose of scheduling a deadline for filing of legal motions, a Motions Hearing, a plea disposition cut-off deadline and a trial date. If a plea disposition has been arrived at, it can be presented to the Court before further scheduling occurs.
