Greetings. I hate to be the horse rider coming in with bad news, but yes, of course they can do stuff to delay the trial. In the event that the attorney has a conflict, the trial may need to be reset. They can find new information, claim they need more time to do discovery, etc. Usually when the pre-trial conferences are completed, the trial is not held up. Best of luck…and we will all hope for a settlement prior to your trial!
