  • More than one case may be set to be heard for trial at the same time or on the same date. In the event such trailing cases are left unresolved at the time or on the day of trial, the court may direct that they remain stacked behind the case being trailed in the order in which they are assigned for trial and that the parties, their attorneys and witnesses must stand ready to proceed to trial upon reasonable oral notification by the court to the attorneys involved.
