Rule 1.6. Judge's Duties
A. The judge presiding at a PTC shall make such orders for disposition of cases that fulfill the purposes of this rule and as justice may require.
B. When apparent by advice from the parties or otherwise that no disposition can be expected, the court shall set the matter for trial. Absent good cause to depart from them, the following rules shall apply:
1. In the event more trials are set on a given day than facilities and personnel of the court can accommodate, the matter shall be continued from hour-to-hour or from day-to-day until completed. Such continued case shall take precedence for trial over any case set the following day.
2. In the event the trial date conflicts with other professional responsibilities of counsel, or with other matters of serious import to a client or to any material witness, the parties shall advise the court of the conflict at the earliest practical date to secure a resetting in accordance with the law or to arrange for representation by other counsel.
C. The judge presiding at the PTC may advise the parties of the matters set forth in subsection B when the case is set for trial.
