What is "Pretrial Conference"?
+++ Lawyers! You Will Get My Vote If You Help me Out!!! +++
New York, NY |
I have a Civil case.
The defendant's lawyer filed Notice of Motion for Formal Complaint, but they didn't show and the motion was denied.
Now I have a Pretrial Conference.
That doesn't sound like a trial to me.
What is it?
A pre-trial conference is usually to discuss possible settlement. If you have not done discovery the court may set up a discovery schedule.
I am a former federal and State prosecutor and now handle criminal defense and personal injury/civil rights cases.
