Rule 7016-2

INITIAL PRETRIAL CONFERENCE

     The Court shall schedule an initial pretrial conference in all adversary proceedings. The date and time of the initial pretrial conference shall be set forth in the summons. Subsequent pretrial conferences may be scheduled in open court or by the Clerk as provided above. If a subsequent pretrial conference is scheduled in open court, the plaintiff shall file a notice of the date and time of such pretrial conference no later than forty-eight (48) hours after it was scheduled in open court.

Comment

     This rule was added in 2013 to require a pretrial conference in every adversary proceeding and to specify the procedures for giving parties notice of the initial conference and any subsequent conferences.
