LCR 40. ASSIGNMENT OF CASES Notice of Trial and Certificate of Readiness. Any party desiring to bring an issue of fact to trial shall serve and file a properly completed Notice for Trial Setting and/or Settlement Conference and Certificate of Readiness on a form available from the court administrator. The party filing the Notice and Certificate shall, after conferring with opposing counsel, specify (a) whether a settlement conference is requested and (b) whether a short notice setting will be acceptable.

Any party contending the case is not ready for trial or that the estimated length of trial is not correct shall serve and file a counter notice of trial or objection to trial setting and notice of argument thereon within five (5) days of the date of service of the notice for trial setting which objection shall be noted for hearing on the next Law and Motion day.
