Trial management conferences focus on issues that will be proceeding to trial. The judge will likely try again to assist the parties in settling, but otherwise will seek to ensure the trial is as focused and expeditious as possible, and that both parties are aware of what evidence the other party will bring.
At the trial management conference each party must indicate what witnesses they will call, how they will present their case, and how much time they anticipate needing at each stage. If a trial date has not already been scheduled, that will be done at the trial management conference.
The preparation, documentation, and deadlines for filing/serving forms for a trial management conference are similar to those for a case management conference. In the case of a trial management conference, each party must file and serve on the other party a Form 17E: Trial Management Conference Brief. Both parties must also file a Form 14C: Confirmation at least 2 business days before the conference date.
