What is Pretrial?

A pretrial hearing provides an opportunity for an early resolution of the case by plea or dismissal, without a trial or to narrow the issues for trial. Secondly, a pretrial might used to establish time frames for discovery, witness and exhibit lists, and for motions and other hearing dates. Finally, it allows the court and the parties to agree on a trial date.
