Default procedure question

Yes only a judge can order a trial. The procedure is you file an application, them you have a case conference, settlement conferences sometimes many in order to solve some issues by giving advice, trial management conference , and them trial. Upu have to go through all these in order to go for trial.

You can however ask for speedy trial if u feel that the conferences are not helping with any chance of settlement.

Motions can be brought only dyer the first case conference and re the only way to get temporary orders. Judges don't usually make orders in conferences unless they are procedural.

I hope this helps! Good luck!
