What does a status hearing mean for court in indiana

Answers:
A status hearing is what it sounds like.

It is where the judge evaluates the status of the proceedings so far, whether a settlement has or will be reached -- it's also a convenient time to schedule any preliminary motions that might be pending.
A status hearing (known in some states as a compliance conference or control date) is usually held by the court in order to make sure that the various pre trial activities are being completed by the parties to the case on schedule. These activities include - and most often relate to - document discovery and depositions.

In civil cases the hearings are brief, and are usually attended only by the lawyers and are strictly procedural. In criminal cases the hearings are also brief, but defendants, particularly those who have not made bail, usually attend.
