Bus/Financial - Law (general) / vonnis
Dutch term or phrase: comparitie
"In geval X zal de rechtbank ter comparitie niet aan een inhoudelijke behandeling kunnen toekomen. Als partijen er in onderling overleg de voorkeur aan geven dat de rechtbank direct uitspraak doet zonder dat eerst de comparitie plaats vindt, dienen zij dat binnen Y weken na de datum van dit vonnis aan de griffie te berichten."

The entry for this under Wikiwords is "pre-trial review," yet when I back translate this in Van den End, "regiezitting" is given. Can anyone confirm this solution as being accurate or come up with something more appropriate? TIA. Cheers, R.

Explanation:
The Court, in fact, informs that the matter cannot be thoroughly discussed when the parties appear before the Court. They can, however, by mutual agreement, indicate to the Court that it can proceed with giving a ruling without the parties' appearance taking place.

This will do nicely, Albert, thank you. Re 'pre-trial review,' I've reviewed various definitions and am not convinced that it's the best (or only) solution. Cheers, R.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
neutral  Ken Cox: JurLex also gives 'personal appearance' and a number of related formulations. As a non-expert (and thus subject to correction), in my view this does not seem to have any necessary relationship to a pre-trial hearing.

  -> I was not at all thinking of a pre-trial. In any trial the parties may be required or wishing to appear. Jacqueline van der Spek gave an excellent explanation of "comparitie" in Kudoz term 365835 but this is not exclusively connected to a pre-trial.
