10. Case Management Conference
A Case Management Conference may be arranged by the PI Master upon application or on his own motion by directions on paper or at the Check List Review Hearing. A Case Management Conference is a critical stage in the proceedings and for most cases virtually the only milestone event before trial. Parties are expected to have complied with the timetable laid down by the Court by the time of the Case Management Conference. Unless sufficient grounds have been shown to it, the Court will not grant extensions of time for compliance. If it does, the grant of extension will most likely be on an unless order basis with self-executing sanctions.
