Default Case look up, what does it mean?

Has any one looked up their LO, own case, friends etc case and seen these?
Or does any one know what they mean?
Do they just mean the courts have determined what classification the charge is & they are moving forward?

That's what it looks like to me. A request to have a court appointed lawyer assigned was approved after a delay, and a lawyer was assigned to the case.

Here's what Cochise County, AZ says about the process involved in court ordered Indigent DC (district court?, or maybe Counsel? ) appointments:

IDC PROCEDURES FOR COURT-APPOINTED ATTORNEYS

IDC assigns counsel in all cases in which the court has made a determination of indigence and ordered that counsel be appointed. A defendant requesting court-appointed counsel must submit a written request to the court. If the request is granted, the court will send IDC a referral for assignment of counsel.

Default Register of Action notes

While unfamiliar with the exact notations this particular court uses, it appears that there was a waiver of the deadline for the court to hold what my state calls a preliminary exam (other states may call it a preliminary hearing, hence "PH'). Also, it looks like the preliminary exam was continued to yet another date.



In many states, when charged with a felony, you have the right to have a preliminary exam / preliminary hearing / probable cause determination within a certain number of days from your arraignment. In my state, that's 14 days. The purpose of the hearing is to determine whether probable cause exists that 1) a felony crime occurred, and 2) that you had something to do with it. If the prosecution can meet that burden, the case continues as a felony - a procedure called "bind over" in my state. Most cases end up being bound over either after running the hearing or when the defendant waives his or her right to the hearing.



There are any number of perfectly valid reasons why the time limit was waived or the hearing continued. Often, it is to the defendant's benefit to waive the time limit, particularly in cases that might turn on a lab result or DNA finding, or when there is an effort to get someone into and qualified for a treatment court.
