RULE 6. SETTING CASES FOR TRIAL A. Requests for trial settings in civil cases will be heard on Law and Motion Day at the time they are regularly noted for setting, upon proper written notice filed with the Clerk of the Court. B. Civil cases will not be set for trial unless issues are fully joined, and all pleadings of the parties have been filed. C. The notice of trial setting shall contain the nature of the cause, estimated length of trial, available trial dates, and names and addresses of attorneys for the parties and shall be signed by the attorney filing it, with the designation of the party represented. D. When a notice for trial assignment comes on for hearing and a party demands or has demanded a jury, the demand should be accompanied with a deposit of the jury fee. Otherwise, a jury will be deemed waived, and the cause will be set for trial to the Court. If a jury is demanded and the jury fee is paid, the case will be set for trail at the next regular jury term setting. E. Notice of trial dates shall be given to all counsel of record by the Clerk of the Court, and such setting shall be deemed binding if no formal objection is filed within 7 days thereof. F. The Omnibus Hearing and pre-trial and trial dates for criminal matters shall be set at the time of arraignment, unless otherwise specifically provided by the Court.
