What does it mean when it says motion docket?
If this is a civil matter, usually it means that the court designates that particular date and time to hear motions. If you have a motion that requires a hearing, you can set the motion for hearing on the "motions docket." Each Court has rules regarding how to set motions for hearing and you should consult the local rules, the judge's rules, and/or the court's clerk to determine the proper procedure. If you have a current legal matter that is set on the court's "motions docket," then you will likely have a hearing that day on whatever motion is before the court on your case. A motion can have a serious impact on a case, including having your case dismissed or a judgment in favor of the other party. You may need to consult an attorney.
Judges tend to group matters - trial days; motion days; status conferences - as an administrative convenience.
