Setting down for trial.

When a defence has been delivered, the plaintiff can serve a notice of trial or a notice for the fixing of a date for trial, as directed by the County Registrar.

Not less than 10 days’ notice of trial should be given, unless otherwise agreed, and the notice should be filed at the Court office.

If the plaintiff fails to serve notice of trial within 10 days of the delivery of the defence, the defendant can serve notice of trial on the plaintiff.

Alternatively, the defendant can apply to the court to dismiss the action for want of prosecution.
