The matter does not have anything to do for a long period of time. For example, a settlement has been reached but payments will be made over time. Thus, the case cannot be dismissed until the final payment is made. Therefore, the case is assigned to the Omni Calendar pending the final payment.

Attorney Kuhn is absolutely correct. The court keeps track of how long cases take from initial filing to final disposition. Judges are actually statistically monitored on the time their cases take. The omni calendar takes a case off of the active, monitored case load, usually because the case is in some form of hiatus, like a settlement to be paid over time, or a bankruptcy with an expectation of reopening of the case after close of the BK case. That way the circumstances of certain cases are not counted against the judge.
Good luck to you.
