A: When your case comes up for trial is not determined by how old your case is. Rather, it depends on how long you've been on the trial calendar. Once your case is on the trial calendar, you start waiting "in line" for a trial date. The calendar control part might be a part which monitors cases that are not yet on the trial calendar in an effort to get them on the trial calendar. You will likely receive a Microsoft Teams link to attend a virtual conference and to discuss what, if any, discovery remains outstanding and whether your case is ready to be placed on the trial calendar. Call the clerk of the Part and find out.
