THIS PROCEDURE, USUALLY SET BEFORE TRIAL AND AFTER ARRAIGNMENT, PROVIDES AN OPPORTUNITY FOR PRETRIAL MOTIONS AND OTHER REQUESTS TO BE CONSIDERED BY THE COURT AT ONE PROCEEDING WITH A MINIMUM OF FORMALITY AND FILINGS. The Court sets an Omnibus Hearing to determine what issues remain or need to be litigated and determined before a criminal trial begins.
An Omnibus Hearing is another status hearing in a criminal case. All the parties in an omnibus hearing have to fill out what's called an Omnibus Hearing Form.
An Omnibus Hearing Form is a checklist of items the Court wants to know about. The Court needs to know if there are any issues with discovery and any pretrial motions that both parties will file in the case.
At the Omnibus Hearing, an Omnibus Form is presented to the Judge. The Omnibus Form will have the issues of discovery that might remain in the case—parties might want disclosure of lab reports or the criminal history of the witnesses that might testify at trial, or maybe there is some missing evidence that the prosecutor hasn't given them yet. Then, the parties also have to let the Judge know if any motions are anticipated.
Sometimes, there are motions to add aggravating factors or allegations. The defense might file a motion to suppress the evidence or a motion to suppress a confession. The Judge has to set these motions for hearings.
Before a trial is set, the Judge wants to know if these potential issues exist. The Judge would usually, at the Omnibus Hearing, either set the case for trial a couple of months after the Omnibus Hearing or could set the case for another status hearing to see if any of the issues that were raised in the Omnibus Hearing have been resolved.
