Possibly, but not definitely. Often if the case is settled, the attorney will call the court and advise to remove the trial date so that it can open for another case. The trial date may also be continued by agreement or even by motion of the court. There is also a chance that the clerk made a mistake; but likely is that the trial date was just removed.
