I'm relatively new here, I've been lurking for about a week just reading through some of your posts. My man is actually still in county jail right now, but I have a feeling he may be there for a little while, so I was hoping you all wouldn't mind if I asked a few questions.
He was arraigned yesterday and now on the clerk of courts website it has the date of his next court date and then it says "Calendar Call" - what does that mean?
Cases are docketed for court on "calendars,' which are simply rosters indicating which cases are scheduled for that particular court date and event. For example, if nine defendants have requested jury trials, those nine cases will be placed on a "jury trial calendar," and scheduled for a certain date. On that date, the judge will "call the calendar," by calling on each individual defendant (through his or her counsel) to announce how he or she wishes to proceed (ready, not ready, etc.).
